love your work, and I found that people from my country, Argentina, are interested too. That makes me feel something between happiness, consciousness and hope. I was trying to find a way to make my help useful long time ago but I didn't know how. This is just a start.
What I'm just trying to do is to get in touch with you and these people to see what we can do. I'm getting involved with the future of my country, thats all. Thanks!

I am a Ph d Student at Cardiff University, with specializing in Internet banking consumer behaviour.
But since last year I realized that I can only find satisfaction in the development work. so I have decided not to go for any high tech, highly paid, or high class job in the banking sector. Rather, Insha Allah I have planned to open a micro credit bank in the poorest area of Pakistan (Balochistan ) where I come from.
I would be in touch with you after i finish my doctorate Insha Allah next year. I might come to Bangladesh for a formal training, so that before starting I am fully equipped with the knowledge of micro credit financing.

Thank you so much for what you have introduced into the world.
I work with women in workshops and in personal coaching sessions. I work with women in the California Bay area as well as in Seattle, Washington, Boise, Idaho and Salt Lake City, Utah. I am very interested in being a part of projects such as those of the Grameen Banks here in the United States.
Is there any projects currently or ones being considered? If not, what would it take to be part of the team to make it happen?

Hi my name is Carlos and I think the Grameen Bank is doing wonderful work in third world countries. I would like to know if you can send me newsletters, pamphlets, and info to my address to inform others about the work of Grameen Bank in my school and my community.

I read your book and loved it! I am an undergraduate student at George Washington University studying International Relations in Developing Countries.
I am very interested in interning with your organization in anyway I can. My career goal is to work with developing nations to assist them with a better quality of life. My family and I currently operate a tennis academy in New York which provides affordable tennis instruction for people of all ages. We work with school district social workers and offer scholarships to underprivileged children. It is a very rewarding experience for all of us and help me determine my career destiny.
I look forward to hearing from you and to working with Grameen Bank, in any way I can.

My name is Felipe and I am "credit curious". After the conclusion of my MBA with a thesis about credit, I continued researching on it. At that time, I read your biography, and I thought it was really fantastic. Today, here in Brazil, we are discussing a lot about microcredit as part of the "Fome Zero" (Zero Hungry) Program, in order to help the Brazilian people to have a better life. To help on the development of a great microcredit program I think I should know more deeply about the philosophy of microcredit. And, there is no better place in the world than Grameen. Seeing how Grameen works, will help a lot in my research. So, I would request, if I could visit you. Let me know, if its possible.

It is nice to see an organisation fostering community spirit in a practical way that really can help the needy in a sustainable way. Your values seem to reflect the basic teachings of God in whatever form man has interpreted eg, Christian, Jew, Muslim etc. The basic respect for one another no matter what and the opportunity for redemption in GGS is commendable. Well Done.

Hello, I have heard Mr.Yunus on a San Francisco radio talking about what he did creating Grameen, and highlighting the need to create new concepts to help social world problems. I have been working for years in the hi-tech industry with all type of experiences and in-depth educations that I feel a deep frustration not being able to bring to a more useful purpose than playing with the American stock market. Hi-tech is useless without a social purpose. I want to help. I heard Mr. Yunus talk about his "aladdin light" idea and social enterpreneurship. I would like to know how he wants to push those ideas and participate in their blossoming if I can help; in particular, would you be interested in helping fund such developments or defining a ground for their developments ? Could you please let me know where to look for further information or who to contact? Thanks a lot.
