Lecture #06 of November 2, 2020 “How the Largest Bank in Europe Created its Own Social Business” is available in Video. An authentic and enriching testimony of Jean-Luc Perron (now Vice-President of our Yunus Paris Center), who created the Grameen Crédit Agricole Microfinance Foundation in 2008 and ran it until end 2016. The Foundation aims to help the poorest countries through Microcredit and Social Business. A great success story that proves what a committed and passionate man can achieve within a leading bank (Crédit Agricole is in the TOP 10 of global banks ranking since 2018).
Professor Yunus: “With the Pandemic, the train stopped suddenly leaving millions of poor even poorer and a few rich even richer”, “Transforming Capitalism”? “It is possible but let’s not go back and learn from our past mistakes”
The French Red Cross has announced its support and signed Professor Yunus’s appeal to make COVID-19 vaccines a global common good. COVID-19 vaccines must be patent-free and accessible to everyone, everywhere.
