NYTimes Editorial Board on Grameen Bank Takeover

The NYTimes Editorial Board has weighed in on the side of Grameen as the Bangladeshi government marches toward takeover.

The government of Bangladesh is considering nationalizing and breaking up the widely admired Grameen Bank, which pioneered the business of lending small amounts of money to poor women who want to start and grow businesses. Lawmakers should reject these destructive ideas and stop meddling in the affairs of this important financial institution, which serves 8.4 million rural women.
