Event Details

Chittagong, Bangladesh, mid-1970s: a young professor at the local university begins to perceive the poverty that surrounds him with a more critical eye. Local people denied access to institutionalized loans find themselves barely eking out a living due to the usurious interest rates charged by loan sharks. The as yet unknown professor devises a solution to this de facto serfdom, and out of his efforts the Grameen Bank is born.

Whether you agree, disagree or are unfamiliar with his work, come join NY+Acumen for what promises to be an impassioned debate of Muhammad Yunus’s autobiography Banker to the Poor.

The discussion will be held Sunday, July 27th from 12PM to 1:30PM at the Atrium at Citigroup Center at 153 East 53rd Street in Manhattan. We look forward to seeing you there!
