I believe and have a strong thought about Grameen Bank. You guys are doing a great job. Keep it up. Hope someday Grameen bank also reaches our country Nepal.

Congratulations to Grameen Shakti. This shows that microfinance can also be combined with green efforts. Hopefully, this will be one of many successes in the social business arena that involve sustainable energy.
