Bonsai People – The Vision of Muhammad Yunus
What if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, and inequality?
To some, it sounds impossible, but Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is doing just that. Bonsai People is an emotionally compelling look at several women receiving microcredit loans and how it empowers them. Through their stories, we see what Yunus saw – microcredit is an important tool, but financial woes are not their only problem – they have needs which simple “social business” solutions can help fulfill.
