The case study of a Nobel-winning bank

Grameen Bank, Commonly known as a rural bank, is considered a socially responsible business enterprise primarily based in a developing country named “Bangladesh” which is located in South Asia. Bangladesh is surrounded by India, Myanmar and the Bay of Bengal being the part of Indian Ocean, and also not too far from Nepal. There are no significant differences in the socio-economic conditions prevalent in these countries. Given the socio-economic perspective of Bangladesh, Grameen Bank was established to provide micro-credits to the Poorest of the poor. Eccentrically, the banking and governance systems of Grameen Bank were designed in a way so that the poor-illiterate loanees own the major share of this bank and take part in its governance system. Over the years, since its inception,

Grameen Bank together with its founder Professor Muhammad Yunus gained public trust and enormous appreciation from the domestic and international community for developing a business model targeting the financially disadvantaged and socially neglected people. As a result, both Grameen Bank and its founder received the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize. Subsequently, Professor Yunus received several awards including America’s Highest Civilian Award “Medal of Freedom” in 2009. However, from 2010, media grabbed headlines of ethical dilemmas surrounding Grameen Bank and its founder. There were major allegations about a financial impropriety and the magnitude of interest rates charged on loans. Despite the US political pressures on Bangladesh Government and external supports for Professor Yunus, at one stage he had to quit Grameen Bank. There are contentions as to whether or not Professor Yunus was misjudged in the political-governance systemof Bangladesh. After the resignation of Professor Yunus, substantial changes occurred in the governance system of this bank.
