Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus Makes Major Announcement about Microcredit Summit Goal
Word doc format

In 1997, the Microcredit Summit Campaign was launched with a commitment to dramatically expand the reach of microloans to the very poor around the world. Microcredit is the provision of small loans to desperately poor people to help pull themselves out of poverty. At the time of the Summit, fewer than 8 million people worldwide had benefited from a microloan. On January 26, 2009, the Campaign will release the State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report 2009, with a major announcement.

Muhammad Yunus — Nobel Peace Prize laureate and founder of Grameen Bank in Bangladesh

Ingrid Munro — founder of Jamii Bora in Kenya

Sam Daley-Harris — Director, Microcredit Summit Campaign (moderator)

Monday, January 26, 2009 10:00 am ET/15:00 GMT by teleconference.

This call is for journalists only, who can call in from any phone. RSVP by contacting Robyn Shepherd at or at the numbers listed above. To participate in the call, dial (877) 795-3647 or +1 719-325-4825 from outside the U.S. Ask for the “Microcredit Summit Report Launch Call.” A recording and a transcript will also be available.

The incredible success of microcredit over the past decade stands in stark contrast to the financial turmoil facing the rest of the world. From the early days of the movement, when Muhammad Yunus founded Grameen Bank with 42 borrowers, microcredit has been challenged by critics who said that is was foolhardy to loan to the world’s poorest people. The progress documented by the State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report not only proves that the world’s poorest can be safe loan candidates, but that often, microfinance institutions have repayment rates that traditional financial institutions would envy. One loan at a time, microcredit is helping the world’s poorest people pull themselves out of poverty with dignity.


The Microcredit Summit Campaign is a project of RESULTS Educational Fund, working to ensure that 175 million of the world’s poorest families, especially the women of those families, are receiving credit for self-employment and other financial and business services by the end of 2015 and that 100 million families rise above the US$1 a day threshold between 1990 and 2015.
