Founded by Muhammad Yunus, Grameen America uses the Grameen Bank model to offer micro-loans to low-income individuals living below the poverty line in the U.S.
Our vision is to help create a world free of poverty. We predict a market where any individual with a dream can receive affordable financial products regardless of income, previous credit history, education, or business experience. We envision a world where burgeoning entrepreneurs are empowered to lift themselves out of poverty through hard work and determination to forge better lives for their families and future generations.
