Business professionals

  • Mohammed Junus (born 1940)

    On October 13, 2006, the economist and the Grameen Bank he founded received the Nobel Peace Prize as a complete surprise. Junus was chosen by the five-member jury because he had initiated innovative economic programs in his home country, such as microcredit for the poor, and thus helped to support "economic and social development from below". This is of particular importance, since "there cannot be lasting peace as long as large sections of the population cannot find a way out of poverty," said the committee in Oslo. The loans were used, for example, to buy cows, chickens or cell phones to enable small business startups. In a statement, the 66-year-old said: "I am delighted. I cannot believe this really happened. Everyone told me I would get the award, but it was an absolute surprise. This is fantastic news for everyone who has supported us. "In Bangladesh alone, over two million people have benefited from interest-free microcredit loans, which were given without collateral and mostly to women.
