Grameen Bank: Muhammad Yunus voices concerns over future

Help

In Bangladesh, economists have expressed concerns over the stability of Grameen Bank, the pioneering micro-lending institution, after the government took steps to give more powers to the bank's government-appointed chairman.

The bank was founded by Nobel Laureate and micro-finance guru, Muhammad Yunus, almost 30 years ago.

He says the latest government moves amount to "a takeover attempt".
