This fascinating documentary focuses on the philosophies and Social businesses of Nobel Peace Prize winner Laureate Muhammad Yunus. The film follows a number of subjects from Bangladesh as they experience Yunus’ Grameen Bank firsthand; a microcredit loan system where the very poor, predominantly women, are given miniscule loans to start their own businesses. As their businesses grow, and they pay back their loans, they can take out more and more. Along the way, they improve their quality of living, offer something of value to their community and hopefully, if all works perfectly, become self-sufficient to the extent where they don’t need to take out loans anymore - and since the system also includes a savings component, they have something set aside should an emergency arise.
A Q & A session will be held after the film with the filmmaker, Holly Mosher. Tickets are available through the OAC Box Office and online Service fees may apply www.theoac.net or (262) 560-3172
