Kayoko, Ken, and Dr. Mohammed Yunus

Kayoko and I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Mohammed Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Winner and author of Banker to the Poor, in person Sunday at The Lodge at Torrey Pines, to discuss the new venture we helped arrange between The Yoga Journal and The Grameen Foundation, thanks to Julia Wilson, Grameen’s West Coast Development Exec. Dr. Yunus is the founder of micro-credit, lending money throughout the world to people banks won’t deal with because they have no collateral. Repayment rate is 98%.
