Impact of Awarding Prof. Yunus the Congressional Gold Medal
Presenting Prof. Yunus with the Congressional Gold Medal would help to:
- Raise public and congressional awareness of the power of microfinance to change lives;
- Build congressional and U.S. government support for this proven anti-poverty intervention;
- Send a strong signal to USAID and the World Bank that the U.S. is committed to microfinance for the very poor;
- Reinforce the message that microfinance is strongly supported by both political parties.
