Month Against Poverty

Mimg src="" width = "400">
One more day of Stand Up Against Poverty Month, and I just learned about it today!

What a fitting time for Muhammad Yunus to win the Nobel Peace prize.

His work as banker to the poor is a revolutionary way to end poverty - by getting people into production.

Interesting fact -- there have been fewer than 2% failure to repay of all the loans he has extended to people who never had enough money to get loans before.
