Through Partners

The Grameen Bank Replication Program (GBRP) was launched in 1989 as a program of Grameen Trust, with the objective of participating in and contributing to the worldwide crusade against poverty.

Grameen Trust (GT) came into being in 1989 with the sole objective of turning the Grameen philosophy into reality by working alongside those struggling to remove poverty. Over the past decades, Grameen Bank (GB) had made history by pulling thousands of women above the poverty line by just providing them with a few dollars of credit, through a financially sustainable institutional framework. Many people and organizations want to know about Grameen and to experiment with it in their own countries in search for an effective tool to remove poverty. The Grameen Bank Replication Program (GBRP) was initiated under Grameen Trust in response to this considerable and growing demand. The GBRP is global in nature. Under this program, GT supports and promotes GB replication projects all over the world. The novelty lies in the metholodology followed by the Program in selecting, building up and implementing potential replications for poverty eradication. Promising individuals and institutions are invited to Grameen to participate in a Dialogue process and spend time at the heart of Grameen Bank at the branch level, to get a hands-on orientation as to what Grameen does and how it does it. Highly committed project leaders are selected for preparation of replications projects, and various types of financial, technical and informational support are provided to the selected projects. GT closely monitors these projects and carries them through subsequent expansion stages with the goal of eventual financial viability.
