Resource Library / State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report 2011

Larry Reed

"Microcredit1 is a tool for unlocking human dreams. But microcredit, by itself, is usually not enough. That may seem like an unusual way to start an annual report from an organization named the Microcredit Summit Campaign, but we recognize that we cannot achieve our goals, especially the goal to see 100 million families move above the US$1.25 a day threshold, with microcredit alone. As Professor Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh, says, the microcredit movement, at its deepest root, is not about money at all, but it does use money to achieve its ends. Money can be used for good or ill: it can liberate or enslave; it can unlock dreams or unleash nightmares. As this report is being completed, in mid-December 2010, we see both of these scenarios playing out." -Executive Summary
