The word "grameen" in bengali literally means rural. This helps to
describe what The Grameen Bank is all about. The bank loans money mostly to
women (about 90%) in amounts ranging from hundreds of dollars to only a
dollar in some instances. The Bank reports a pay back rate of 98%, - This extraordinary rate of
return is causing many institutions of the world to sit up and take
notice of the phenomena started by one man, Muhammad Yunus.
