Social Entrepreneurship

Authors@Google Muhammad Yunus (YouTube Video)

In 2006, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank for their efforts to create economic and social development from below. "Lasting peace can not be achieved unless large population groups find ways in which to break out of poverty. Micro-credit is one such means. Development from below also serves to advance democracy and human rights."

There has been a significant increase in such enterprises in developing countries, created both for altruistic reasons and the recognition that such businesses can succeed."
