I learned alot from this. Can't really judge the writing - its more the info therein and that was what I was looking for.

An uplifting story about the triumph of love over greed. Many, many organizations leverage micro-lending or micro-credit today and I hope that the philosophies of Grameen continue to grow and seep into cultures around the world. This is a very uplifting and inspiring true story. ( )
