Quotes

As for the topic of pivoting--the in-vogue Silicon Valley phrase for radically altering a business plan-- "the reality is that sometimes firms have to change mission. There is nothing stronger to believe in than reality. The problem with a lot of economists is when they see a gap between reality and theory, they think there's a problem with reality. People get blinded to the reality of a situation. That's why people in the front lines often make better judgment calls. The front line is ever changing. You have to have goals, big picture aspirations of the future, and then match that with reality. It is a dialectic world. Paradox is a way of life. How do you manage opposites? There are no fixed ways. If you see opposite extremes, you don't compromise in the middle, you find a synthesis at a higher level."
"We are pleased to be recognized by ImpactAssets 50 for the third year in a row. Grameen Foundation is committed to expanding income-generating opportunities for the poor in rural or hard-to-reach markets through targeted investments in businesses ranging from microfinance in Peru, to mobile payments in Indonesia and honey production in Kenya.

Impact investments are especially critical for underserved communities and we thank ImpactAssets 50 for spotlighting leading organizations working in this area" said Alex Counts, president and CEO of Grameen Foundation
"This was an inspiring innovation which has been copied by many countries around the world," Lanvin says. "Lending small amounts of money to poor people so they can start small businesses has been an amazing story and a true innovation in a poor country."
"Microcredit borrowers in Bangladesh have proved that they are trustworthy, take loans and return loans in time" Muhith said
