Bangladesh banker and economist Muhammad Yunus is the founder of a movement responsible for ameliorating the poverty of millions of individuals. In this in-depth visit with Yunus, he describes how he innovated the concept of microcredit -- a program providing collateral-free lending to impoverished people. Yunus also recalls his humble beginnings as the son of a small-businessman in East Pakistan and traces his path to global social change.
