Keynote Speaker
The keynote speaker for the 2005 conference was Dr. Muhammad Yunus, Founder and Managing Director of Grameen Bank in Bangladesh and a pioneer in the practice of microcredit lending. Grameen Bank received formal recognition as a private independent bank in 1983 and, in 2005, had dispersed close to $5 billion in loans to four million borrowers, 96% of them women. Dr. Yunus recently won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to help eradicate poverty through microfinance.
