We’ve seen glimpses of this potential on numerous international and national stages. This initiative was an effort by Telenor Microfinance Bank to highlight these individuals and provide them with the resources they would need to make their visions a reality. We believe that people make organizations and they are the force that drives countries towards prosperity.”
