"Inspired by Nobin entrepreneur Hosne Ara"

Ana Maria Drummond, a passionate social entrepreneur from Brazil, recently did a Yunus Centre's Immersion Program. Ana reflects about her journey through social business in an online diary that she maintained during her visit to Bangladesh. She was inspired by Ms. Hosna Ara, in Bangladesh, whom she met when visiting the Nobin Program. She is a mother who struggled alone with 3 kids, and pledged to start her own beauty salon. She took equity funding from the Nobin Fund, which was created for the children of Grameen Bank borrowers who become entrepreneurs.

But her beauty salon was much more than just that. She bought sewing machines to train other women for a small fee, to empower many more single mothers like her. It became a safe place where the destitute could go. Ana and her business partner, Marin Martins Monterosso, were so impressed by Hosne Ara's initiative, that they began their Breadwinners Project in Brazil while they were still in Bangladesh. They decided to replicate the beauty parlor service hub for women at community level, starting with an initial hub in Sao Paolo, with a plan to expand into a network of hubs across Brazil.

Taking an inspirational lead from Ms. Hosna, and guided by the philosophy of Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, these Brazilians have embarked into a journey of social businesses. The photos below tell the story. To quote Professor Yunus “If we want to help poor people out, one way to do that is to help them explore and use their own capability. Human being is full of capacity full of capability, is a wonderful creation. But many people never get a chance to explore that, never, no that she nor he has that”.

Development has always been an issue for all the countries but no development can bring a long-lasting impact for the nation until it becomes sustainable. Social business is such a concept of doing business that not only makes profit but aims to change people’s lives meaningfully through covering all the aspects of sustainable development goals. The concept of social business has a unique philosophical point of view as Professor Yunus has explained that business must be based on two fundamental motives of human being, namely selflessness and selfishness. In most businesses people always seek profit selfishly. However, social business is also based on the profit-making activities. But with the profit of it different philanthropic activities are performed in the society. Philosophically for Yunus, the profits which are made through a social business operation are less significant than the positive outcomes it brings for the society.
The Daily Sun covered Professor Muhammad Yunus’s concept of Social Business: A Unique Approach to Achieving SDGs in their special feature.

Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus addressed an audience of 1800 young delegates from 193 countries at the Opening Ceremony of the One Young World at the Peace Palace at the Hague last night. He urged the young people to imagine the world they would like to build and start working now to create that world as each youngster has all the creativity and technology in their hands to achieve that. He said ‘Start tackling the smallest part of a large problem, don’t get overwhelmed.’ He reminded that a new world cannot be created by going through old roads; that they needed to build the new roads. Social business is one tool to build a new road. The event was opened by the Queen Maxima of Netherlands and attended by Mayor of the Hague, the President of the International Court of Justice, Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman, Bob Geldof and others.
