Vikram Akula:

A Fistful of Rice: My Unexpected Quest to End Poverty Through Profitability - new book

2010, ISBN: 9781422131176

ID: 653342669

A first-hand account of one man´s quest to eradicate poverty by unleashing the entrepreneurial spirit of India´s poor. What Paul Farmer is to infectious disease, Vikram Akula is to poverty and his quest has been as harrowing and heart-breaking as Farmer´s. Scene by scene, Akula reveals how he pieced together the best of philanthropy and to his own surprise the best of capitalism to serve millions of India´s poor. Akula´s transformation from activist to entrepreneur to corporate executive parallels that of each SKS Microfinance ´member´ from pauper to customer to business woman. In creating a high-performance enterprise of true professionals, Vikram has done what other microfinancing models have failed to do, which is to achieve the scale, the scope and the profitability necessary to sustain its efforts without ongoing fundraising. It is a remarkable entrepreneurial journey, populated by a colorful cast of characters including India´s political star, Rahul Gandhi. A Fistrful of Rice/i is the lively and sharply told narrative of Vikram´s entrepreneurial journey. Like Mountains Beyond Mountains, the book should inspire readers of the possibilities and introduce them to Vikram´s philosophy as he discover A Third Way to address the world´s hairiest problems.

[EAN: 9781422131176], [PU: Harvard Business Review Press], Business & Economics|Development|Sustainable Development, Business & Economics|Entrepreneurship, Business & Economics|Nonprofit Organizations & Charities, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Around the globe, poverty has held too many people in its grip for too long. While microfinance, small loans to impoverished individuals, initially attracted attention in the press, it didn't achieve the scale, scope, and profitability necessary to substantially combat poverty. All that changed with the author's creation of SKS Microfinance. In this work, he reveals how he pieced together the best of both philanthropy and (to his surprise) capitalism to help millions of India's poor transition from paupers to customers to business owners. His story shows how traditional business principles can be brought to bear on global problems in new ways. This book offers not only inspiration but also lessons for anyone seeking to transform tenacity, creativity, and innovation into potent tools for fighting even the most seemingly intractable human burdens.
