In 2013, his Grameen Shakti reached a landmark by completing the installation of more than one-million solar home systems across Bangladesh, allowing millions access to affordable electricity and transforming lives.

Yunus also was featured in a Harvard Business Review post “HBR Interviews 10 Intriguing People”.
