On Monday, we celebrated Grameen America's sixth branch opening.

We were elated to have Professor Yunus join us for the ribbon cutting ceremony in the Bronx. As he told the audience of borrowers and supporters, "today is not just opening a branch, it's opening a future."

     

You can catalyze the success of our new Bronx branch by helping us raise $7,500, enough for five loans. With your support, we can help make a brighter future for a new borrower today, a future where, as Professor Yunus says, “all impossibles are possible.”

Many thanks to CitiBank for supporting the event and helping our borrowers build savings.
