Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. With dust jacket. 191 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. A Fistful of Rice: My Unexpected Quest to End Poverty Through Profitability BY VIKRAM AKULA-Hardcover IN DUST JACKET CONDITION GOOD--**SIGNED BY AUTHOR*** 191 PAGES-COPYRIGHT 2010 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 Vikram Akula's creation of SKS Microfinance. In this highly personal narrative, A Fistful of Rice, Akula 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. As thoughtful as Barack Obama's personal journey in Dreams from My Father, as harrowing as Paul Farmer's battle against infectious disease in Mountains Beyond Mountains, and as gripping as Greg Mortensen's fight for education in Three Cups of Tea, Akula's story shows how traditional business principles can be brought to bear on global problems in new ways. A Fistful of Rice 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. BOOK REVIEW-Format: Hardcover Entrepreneur Vikram Akula inspires and tells a compelling story. He shares his personal history and his passion for eradicating poverty in India, while educating readers about the origins of microfinance and his search for a better way to help the poor. His firm, SKS Microfinance, has become a profitable business that makes money for investors while helping millions of impoverished people in India. Akula doesn't flinch from explaining the controversy involved in making microfinance a for-profit enterprise where better-known programs are nonprofits, believing that his model keeps investors engaged. Akula's writing is persuasive, his story is fascinating and his ideas are influential, as billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffett can attest. While Akula could have added even more heartfelt inspiration by including less history of microfinance and more stories of real people and what they did with their loans, this is an important story. getAbstract believes that this book will resonate deeply with any entrepreneurs, dreamers or desk jockeys who have a belief that it's possible to change the world, as well as with bankers, executives and those already fighting the good fight in the field of nonprofits., Harvard Business School Press, 2010

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.
