Grameen Foundation’s roots and strongest fraternal relations are with the Grameen family of organizations founded by Professor Muhammad Yunus in 1997, with the launch of Grameen Bank in Bangladesh.
Alliances with like-minded organizations enable us to progress more swiftly toward our goals, particularly in the field of financial inclusion.
