Social Business

A social business purpose is to meet the many challenges of poverty and exclusion, while obeying a business model. The social business company thus takes the best of two worlds: the rigor and innovation capacity of entrepreneurship and the altruism of philanthropy. Designed and successfully implemented by Professor Yunus, the social business approach aims to create and develop economically viable enterprises that place the fight against poverty at the heart of their strategy and business model and whose shareholders accept to reinvest their profits to achieve greater impact.

To give more visibility to its social business approach, promote this concept amongst socially motivated investors and attract more resources for the development of its activity in favour of social business companies, the Foundation launched the Grameen Crédit Agricole Fund (GCA Fund).
