Credit Where Credit's Due
"Poverty is not created by poor people... Poverty is created by institutions that we build, policies that we pursue; concepts that we create." Mohammad Yunus created a concept to combat poverty - micro-credit - providing loans to the poor to whom the banks won't lend. And it works. Life recounts how taking out a loan revolutionised the lives of village women Jahanara, Bilkis, Nargis, Minara, Mageda and Shonda - not only increasing their incomes but also helping to improve their, and their children's, health.
