PRESENTATION TOPICS 
 Dr. Muhammad Yunus. 
(Pioneer of microcredit)
BASIC INFORMATION 
 Dr. Muhammad Yunus is a Bangladeshi social 
entrepreneur, banker, economist and civil social 
leader who was awarded the Nobel peace prize 
for founding the Grameen Bank and pioneering 
the concept of microcredit and Microfinance. 
 Professor Muhammad Yunus is the recipient of 
more than 50 honorary degrees from universities 
across 20 countries. He has received 112 awards 
from 26 countries including state honours from 10 
countries.
EARLY LIFE & EDUCATION 
 Muhammad Yunus was born in 28th June, 1940 in the village 
of Bathua, in Hathazari, Chittagong. He was the third of 14 
children. His father was a successful goldsmith who always 
encouraged his sons to seek higher education. But his biggest 
influence was his mother, Sufia Khatun, who always helped 
any poor that knocked on their door. This inspired him to 
commit himself to eradication of poverty. His early childhood 
years were spent in the village. In 1944, his family moved to 
the city of Chittagong and he moved from his village school to 
Chittagong Collegiate School from where he passed his S.S.C. 
He completed his H.S.C from Chittagong College. In 1957, he 
enrolled in the Department of Economics at Dhaka University 
and completed his BA in 1960 and MA in 1961.
CAREER 
 After his graduation, Yunus joined the Bureau of 
Economics as a research assistant. Later, he was 
appointed lecturer in economics in Chittagong College in 
1961. From 1969 to 1972, Yunus was assistant professor 
of economics at Middle Tennessee State University in 
Murfreesboro. After 1972 he joined as a professor of 
economics at Chittagong University. Yunus discovered 
that very small loans could make a disproportionate 
difference to a poor person. Yunus lent US$27 of his 
money to 42 women in the village, who made a profit of 
BDT 0.50 (US$0.02) each on the loan.
Thus Yunus is credited with the idea of microcredit alongside 
Dr. Akhtar Hameed Khan, founder of the Pakistan Academy 
for Rural Development (now Bangladesh Academy for Rural 
Development), whom Yunus greatly admired In December 
1976, Yunus finally secured a loan from the government 
Janata Bank to lend to the poor in Jobra. The institution 
continued to operate, securing loans from other banks for its 
projects. By 1982, it had 28,000 members. On 1 October 
1983, the pilot project began operation as a full-fledged bank 
for poor Bangladeshis and was renamed Grameen 
Bank("Village Bank").
