Eliminating Poverty through Social Business
Grameen Australia uses the power of social business to empower families living in extreme poverty to create sustainable wealth and a more secure life for themselves.
Grameen Australia supports the most abandoned families to achieve sustainable livelihoods through the provision of training, financial literacy, ongoing mentoring and microfinance. To achieve a sustainable social outcome we use the ‘Yunus Social Business’ model, which maximises social outcomes through maximization of financial profit with all profits returned to the business to increase its impact.
The training and funding provided to beneficiaries enables them to establish their own businesses to secure their income. Ongoing monitoring and mentoring allows these businesses to scale leading to economic opportunities for the broader community. Our work is underpinned by leveraging technology and accessing expert partnerships.
In all our work, we embrace and draw inspiration from our rich Grameen Heritage.
