Rank this case study
 
Beginning in 1976 with one microcredit facility in rural Bangladesh, Grameen Bank has managed to transform the lives of the rural disadvantaged across the world by giving them access to capital through loans.

Grameen Bank launched at a time when there was not a single banking or credit facility available to the poor and disadvantaged people of rural Bangladesh. By extending banking facilities to the villagers, Grameen Bank removed any and all dependency on the money lenders which was a common form of exploitation of the poor. The aim of the Bank was to bring the disadvantaged, especially women, from the poorest households to understand and operate on their own all necessary credit transactions. This case study describes the innovative programme and the processes undergone to make it one of the world’s most powerful and trustworthy socially conscience efforts.
