Papers from the Grameen Foundation

The Grameen Bank in Bangladesh is considered to be a pioneering microfinance institution:

"Started in 1976 by Professor Muhammad Yunus with a mere $27 from his own pocket, Grameen Bank today serves more than six million poor families with loans, savings, insurance and other services. The bank is fully owned by its clients and has been a model for microfinance institutions around the world."

The Grameen Foundation, a related organization, has a series of interesting papers on its web site that are worth a look.
