Putting poverty in the museum: A revolution in the making

The award of the Nobel Prize to Dr. Mohammed Yunus of Bangladesh highlighted the role of microfinance and micro-credit in poverty alleviation. The author has given an overview of the successful Microfinance institutions and other committed social entrepreneurs, including the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh, whose work in this field has impacted millions of households across the world, especially in India and Bangladesh. It has been brought out that 'For Profit Social Business' carried out by these institutions and entrepreneurs would be instrumental in poverty removal from the globe, and very hopefully, banish it to the museums.
