BANKER TO THE POOR Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ray Porter

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

This incredible account of Muhammad Yunus and his creation of the Grameen Bank, which provides microcredit loans for the poor, is a wonderful yet heartbreaking memoir, expertly realized by narrator Ray Porter. This story is so powerful that it needs no embellishment, and Porter knows exactly how to read it with a touching and firm delivery that involves listeners instead of preaching to them. There are lessons to be found at every point in the book, namely that credit is a basic human right; that, when given a chance, even the poorest of the poor will repay their loans; and that the human spirit is alive and well. Porter delivers the material as if it were his own. A greater compliment there could not be for audiobook narration. L.B.
