As a child, Muhammad Yunus witnessed poverty and its devastating impact on families in what eventually became Bangladesh. As an adult, he studied economics and pursued his vision of eradicating poverty, starting by figuring out how to give women a way to borrow money for materials they could craft into items to sell. This would all them to support their families. Over time, Muhammad Yunus's dedication contributed to a better life for millions. This colorfully-illustrated, inspiring biography carefully unfolds the concept of micro-finance and economics appropriate for middle grade readers.
