Yunus a great dreamer: Mozena

Nobel Laureate Prof Dr Muhammad Yunus is a great dreamer, says US Ambassador in Dhaka Dan W Mozena.“Indeed, Yunus is a great dreamer. He dreams that the poor people want better lives for themselves and their families, the poor people can invest money, the poor people can do battle, they can strive, the poor people can leave themselves out of poverty and the poor people can become truly contributing members of a society,” he told the opening session of a daylong conference here on Friday.

Yunus Centre organised the conference at Radisson Blu Water Garden Hotel, marking the 4th annual Social Business Day.

Mozena said it was a conventional wisdom that the poor people have no skill and they only eat up money, but Prof Yunus came up with his dream (microcredit) and provides grants to the poor.

Seeing a mighty power of hope, Mozena said Prof Yunus launched a new concept of social business, a beautiful simple idea that private companies can be reestablished into social projects.

The US Ambassador said Yunus is a dreamer, a believer in the poor, and he dreams of sending the poverty into museum. “On behalf of the people of Bangladesh and the USA, I thank Prof Mohammad Yunus.”
