A Short History of Grameen Bank

  • The origin of Grameen Bank can be traced back to 1976 when Professor Muhammad Yunus, Head of the Rural Economics Program at the University  of Chittagong, launched an action research project to examine the possibility of designing a credit delivery system to provide banking services targeted at the rural poor. The Grameen Bank Project (Grameen means "rural" or "village" in Bangla language) came into operation with the following objectives:

  • extend banking facilities to poor men and women;

  • eliminate the exploitation of the poor by money lenders;

  • create opportunities for self-employment for the vast multitude of unemployed people in rural Bangladesh;

  • bring the disadvantaged, mostly the women from the poorest households, within the fold of an organizational format which they can understand and manage by themselves; andreverse the age-old vicious circle of "low income, low saving & low investment", into virtuous circle of "low income, injection of credit, investment, more income, more savings, more investment, more income".

  • The action research demonstrated its strength in Jobra (a village adjacent to Chittagong University) and some of the neighboring villages during 1976-1979. With the sponsorship of the central bank of the country and support of the nationalized commercial banks, the project was extended to Tangail district (a district north of Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh) in 1979. With the success in Tangail, the project was extended to several other districts in  the country. In October 1983, the Grameen Bank Project was transformed into an independent bank by government legislation. Today Grameen Bank is owned by the rural poor whom it serves. Borrowers of the Bank own 90% of its shares, while the remaining 10% is owned by the government.


Philosophy of the founder

  • we see the poor people as human "bonsai". If a healthy seed of a giant tree is planted in a flower-pot, the tree that will grow will be a miniature version of the giant tree. It is not because of any fault in the seed, because there is no fault in the seed. It is only because the seed has been denied of the real base to grow on.

  • If we can succeed in doing that there will be no human "bonsai" in the world. We'll have a poverty-free world.

Difference between Grameen Bank and Conventional Banks ?

1.Conventional banking is based on collateral, Grameen system is collateral- free.

2.Conventional banks look at what has already been acquired by a person. Grameen looks at the potential that is waiting to be unleashed in a person.

3.Conventional banks are owned by the rich, generally men. Grameen Bank is owned by poor women.

4. Conventional banks objective is to maximize profit. Grameen Bank's objective is to bring financial services to the poor, particularly women and the poorest.

5.Grameen Bank branches are located in the rural areas, conventional banks which try to locate themselves as close as possible to the business districts and urban centers.

6.There is no legal instrument between the lender and the borrower in the Grameen methodology.

Conventional banks go into 'punishment' mode when a borrower is taking more time in repaying the loan than it was agreed upon.

7.Conventional banks do not pay attention to what happens to the borrowers' families as results of taking loans from the banks. Grameen system pays a lot of attention to monitoring the education of the children.

Method of Action

1. Start with the problem rather than the solution

2. Adopt a progressive attitude.

3. Make sure that the credit system serves the poor, and not vice-versa: credit officers visit the villages, enabling them to get to know the borrowers.

4. Establish priorities for action vis-a-vis to the the target population

5. At the begining, restrict credit to income-generating production operations, freely selected by the borrower. Make it possible for the borrower to be able to repay the loan.

6. Lean on solidarity groups

7. Associate savings with credit without it being necessarily a prerequisite.

8. Combine close monitoring of borrowers with procedures which are simple and standardised as possible.

9. Do everything possible to ensure the system's financial balance.

10. Invest in human resources

10 Indicators

  • Every year GB staff evaluate their work and check whether the socio-economic situation of GB members is improving. GB evaluates poverty level of the borrowers using ten indicators.

  • A member is considered to have moved out of poverty if her family fulfills the following criteria: 

  • 1. The family lives in a house worth at least Tk. 25,000 (twenty five thousand) or a house with a tin roof, and each member of the family is able to sleep on bed instead of on the floor.  

  • 2.  Family members drink pure water of tube-wells, boiled water or water purified by using alum, arsenic-free, purifying tablets or pitcher filters.

  • 3.  All children in the family over six years of age are all going to school or finished primary school.

  • 4. Minimum weekly loan installment of the borrower is Tk. 200 or more.

  • 5. Family uses sanitary latrine.

  • 6. Family members have adequate clothing for every day use, warm clothing for winter, such as shawls, sweaters, blankets, etc, and mosquito-nets to protect themselves from mosquitoes.

  • 7.  Family has sources of additional income, such as vegetable garden, fruit-bearing trees, etc, so that they are able to fall back on these sources of income when they need additional money.

  • 8.  The borrower maintains an average annual balance of Tk. 5,000 in her savings accounts.

  • 9. Family experiences no difficulty in having three square meals a day throughout the year, i. e. no member of the family goes hungry any time of the year.

  • 10.  Family can take care of the health. If any member of the family falls ill, family can afford to take all necessary steps to seek adequate healthcare.
