Description:

What's keeping the hard-working, but poor, rural villagers in Bangladesh from escaping poverty? In one village, Professor Muhammad Yunus found that for a total of just $27, he could make life-changing loans to 40 women. Thus was born the idea of microcredit - giving very small loans to poor people to allow them to start successful businesses.
