Bonsai -Celebrating the Vision of Muhammad Yunus from micro-credit to social business. What if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, and inequality? To some, it sounds impossible. But Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is doing exactly that. Yunus did his part to fight poverty by micro-lending $27 to 42 women, an effort which has now grown to 8 million women and 8 billion dollars. But he didn't stop there; whenever he sees a problem he starts a social business - showing the world that complex problems sometimes do have simple answers. It's not about handouts, it's about a hand up. Written by
Wow. I would feel bad about myself after seeing this movie if it weren't for the fact that it totally motivated me to keep plugging along. Muhammad Yunus is an example of what one person can do to create great change in the world for good. I loved that the filmmaker, Holly Mosher, went to Bangladesh by herself to follow her subjects. Very empowering. Watch it and get motivated too! I loved the subjects she followed, I really felt connected to them throughout the film. Now I want to visit Bangladesh, especially before the sea levels rise even more and the people are displaced. This film puts a face to the people. May we all be blessed to help others in this manner. I'm thinking about opening a branch! LOL
