Muhammad Yunus


Yunus Sports Hub

Professor Muhammad Yunus is a Nobel Peace Laureate, Olympic Laurel awardee, Bangladeshi economist, and founder of the Grameen Bank, the world’s first dedicated microcredit institution for the poor. He is also known as the "father of social business" and as one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time. In 2006, the Nobel Committee jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Peace to Professor Yunus and the Grameen Bank “for their efforts to create economic and social development from below.” In 2020, Professor Yunus became only the second recipient of the Olympic Laurel, awarded for his extensive work and commitment to sport for development. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach described the work done by Professor Yunus in sport as "exemplary".
