Grameen Group Lending Model

The group lending model is a cornerstone of the Grameen methodology. In this model, individuals must form a group of five and receive a five day financial training in order to receive a loan from Grameen. The emphasis from the very outset is to organisationally strengthen the Grameen clientele, to build their capacity to plan and implement micro-level development decisions. Multiple groups form a center and meet every week to repay their loans and meet with Grameen staff.
