Katharine Esty in the Concord Journal — Update: Video

Kind thanks to Concord Journal writer Kimberly Hooper who stopped by to talk with Katharine Esty about her book, and her journey to write it. 

“I was completely bowled over,” said Esty, who is also a practicing psychotherapist. “Here was this Muslim man, a Bangladeshi, dedicating his life to ending poverty. He was working with women and lending to women and was really trying to change the culture. I wanted the whole world to know his story.”

 She knew that Yunus, now 73, founder of the microcredit movement that has empowered millions of poor women in nearly 100 countries, was doing great things for others and thought he was “the most incredible amazing man.”
