yunus 4.2 microcreditsummit disaster and how tech took over from trusted manual networks

back in 1997 dhaka was launched as the open universkity of microcredit - arguably the greatest innovation ever in developing economics

there was so much that could have been learnt from 1997 about 1) how microcredit and girl empowerment village networks had been innovated lout of bangladesh since 1972, and 2) how new technolgoies double and redouble opportunity and risk around thee innovations as peopel who never had access to electgricity grids leapfroged to solar, and who had never been connecetd by fixed lines telephones leapt to mobile

but the lobby network that arranged the summit never saw its purpose as educational just about lobbying - to this day not one western university has an accurate curriculum of how the world's ;poorest village mothers developed the 8th largest nation

worse just as new technologies took over big banking they were soon to take over microbanking as well; if only the summit had been called microtech or microeducation it wouldnt have ended up being sponsored by big bankers and largely attracting financial students instead of every kind of student needed to make millennials the sustainability generation

in all of this yunus storytold concepts he was developing sometimes ahead of their executional proof of scaling, and almost always omiting to reference the knowledge partners that the technology depended on; what was happening was yunus had been use to the pre-digital world where experimentation in the village could be iterative and there wasnt much expensive competition; yunus did not wholly have the time to manage high cost technology workers even those who mainly wanted to do heroic stuff with mobile connectivity but needed 1) to make a living and 2) needed consistency if the big ideas that yunus promised like bank teh next billion digitally were to happen

across the world of microcreditsumit by 2011 only one of the truly great manual microcredits had independently survived the hi-tech revolution - namely brac which always was the deeper foundation of microcredit (microhealth, jobs creating education, redesign of value chains)  than yunus grameen

the people who had shared all their knowledge in 1996 both on microsolar (ie neville wilalms and bob freling) and on mobile in the villages (the partnership led by the geieus tech brothers the quadirs with telenor and george soros and resources such as mit and legatum) all moved on , where they stayed in bangladesh they congregated around brac

back at grameen in 2009 there was a split between the founding 4 with dipal barua the youngest who had taken on the most work operationally in understanding the numbers and growing the energy busienss sacked; at the same time the government started its slow takeover of grameen and yunus hired a new pr agent who started to demand more and more money from every youth network that had once been truly inspired by yunus outreach as his generation's most collaborative of dream makers
