While the bank concept was being tested 1976-1983 , yunus wasn't allowed to talk to the women memebrs but he waited in the middle of the village where swarms of children appear. Yunus noticed that many of these children were blind as soon as it became dark. He asked some medical fineds what could cause this- was told lack of vitamis. When he asked his frineds how to resolve this - the simplest answer was -grow carrots. So it was that every bank cenbtre became twinned with a vegetable garden. Because bank managers visit their village custokers weekly, it was easy to ask the bank managers to distribute small packs of carrot seeds priced at 1 taka per pack. At one time this distribution became so massive that the grameen bank was also the largest distributor of vegetable seeds in Bangladesh.
When yunus pioneered the idea of global coeporate partnerships, the first app was nutritional with Danone and the fortified infant yogurt. Ever since Yunus first encounters with village children, simple solutions to nutrition and health have been searched out by yunus and his friends wherever they can - see our discussion of how grameen healthcare was built
Dr Yunus has now hosted 5 stateswide youth entrepreneur competition in the USA. Students most popular social business solutions connect with food security, nutrition and health.
