japanese silicon valley friends of abed helped him launch bracnet in 1996 - while its true that the combination of solar and mobile changed the possibility of developing places previously excluded from electricity grids i am not so sure whether dr yunus telephone girls were the biggest story-

- back in 1996 brac already had nation wide service/supply chain organisations in 5 dimemesions -the rural agricultural and cratsfs ones being called brac 3nterprises - health food security education partering plarforms as well as finance- it wanted to digitalise the information dewspearely -when you think about recording transacrions such as supplying 50 cents birthing kits (the current wholesale proce of brac's kit for village mifwifes) the amount of manual record keeping needed heroic work by every staff member of brac - it was only the hardest working service staff i have ever seen that could manually record such data-

as you can see from the 2014 report reproducedbelow digitaliising brac's launch of city bank aimed at supporting particularly 2nd generation vilage families. and small eterprises was a huge project for bracnet

yes its true for a decade the best village franchise a women could get was to be the mobile phone box and walking yellow pages for the 60 people she met weekly in her brac circle - but once everyone started to get phones its not clear where that led grameen - (yes indeed grameen phone was bangladesh's biggest company but two thirds owned by telenor most of its business was no different than any other mobile operator to get a nations first licence - yes the first licence it got underpaid the governmet by about 100 fold because some consultant had got the size for mobile customers 100 times wrong!)

i  first visited grameen in 2007 and the idea of bank a billion cashless was absolutely yunus main desire we smapled 10000 dvds of his leadership team interviews who were all revved up around that belief the week in 2008 that the nobel judges came to celebrate yunus and bangladesh youth -if you will pay for postage i can send you a dvd chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk as we kypt 1000 for libaries 

- i talked for houts to his tech director kazi islam (whome abed had headhunted from working with ck prahalad in michigan prof of bottom billion marketing) who desperatly wanred to achieve yunus dream but what happened at brac was steadily different

it wasnt until 2012 that brac had found all the partners for launhiing cashless banking for a billion unbanked or underbanked - the model bill gates has endorsed as the wizardry of fintech for the poor only rivaled (possibly by what went on in china around jack ma's alipay - a model now controversial as china does want american stockmarkets to own its rural digital banking) - and as the attached 2014 report even this launch was as much about internal supply chain records now going digital omstead of manual

if you think i am wrong in my reporting - i suugest you look at the partners of bkash - many started with yunus but moved over to brac as they wanted to lojg term improve tech and co-create; they even broight in the founding tech wizard from kenya's mpesawhich arguable wqas nearer to being a stand alone consumer financial service but even mpesa is complicated owned by vodaphone foundation and with safari parterships orinally being rhe sypply chain?

From early 1960s my father's (Norman Macrae) Asia Rising surveys offered distinctive future capitalism models (rural keynes for villages, supercity multi-win trade for hi-tech sme value chains) in The Economist argued that the 60+% of humans who are Asian and had been colonised due to way white empires applied engines - from 1972 fathers' entrepreneurial revolution & future history series debated why all communities would need bottom-up microfranchising to balance big government and big corporation if we want every community next child is born into to be a place where youth livelihoods thrive

here is a summary of the main economics stories connecting abed glasgow ; help us tell other stories on how abed formed the world's largest ngo partnership , and who is multiplying his legacy where - after 50 years of empowering asiam women villagers from 1972 and responding to worldwide partnerships through university and internet from 1996 , sir fazle died 20 dec 2019

story 1 after going as teen from east pakitan to study naval engineering at adma smith galsgow's university, abed cmlmmbed to be leading asian ceo for royal dutch shell; but in 1970 when a cyclone killed a million of his compatriotsd he decided to end his contract with shell- by 1972 he was spendong his life savings of 15000 poinds building 15000 homes for 100000 vilagers; while oxfam ranked this the most effective project ever seen- abed was mortified- as soon as he walked through vilages he found mothers dying every week of starvation and infants dying of lack of clean water- so he sdtarted designing micrfrancise busiensses vilage moters could make profits from while solving last mile health and food security needs; he now had a metavilage lab to find partners and test vilage busienss solutions; tahts how he started connecting partners across all 5 dinemsions - health, food, finance , education 100% productivity of women-empowered communities- in bangladesh vilages in 1992 meant no electrivcity grids ; all networks person to person; for teh first 25 yeras all brac partnerships needed to want to pilot solutions to end this extreme poverty

story 2 chiense vilagers faced similat chalenges and need for women to be as productive as men; while there were no financial positions in each other , solutions of brac and china were open sourced - ultimately the vast majority of all extreme poverty in asia well over a billion people came from etehse exchnages; abed said he was lucky - the chiense wanted solutions like oral rehydration that his country's cholera lab had discovered but not known how to get illiterate mothers to appluy- brac's employye number 3 was the wife of a chiense american whose main job in early 1970s was to transfer last mile health solutions to china; in the late 1970s UNICEY announced yera of chiold compoetitions- brac enetered oral rehydration and won the main prize funding to scale nationwide ; james grant went on to extend brac franchised solutions on oral rehydration and conteunental scale vaccinatio0n as unicef's biggest achievement of teh 1980s as well as bracs; in this way brac had within 13 yeras of startup scaled across almost all of rural bangadesh and its knowhow was shared across china villages; starngely because india and myanmar were historically opponents to muslims models of rural keynesiainsm first reported in The Economist as invenetd by Japan , Taiwan, Korea south dveloped bangladesh and china but not so much India and Myanmar or west pakistan the other major peoples of the south asia coastline west od asean

3 mame of 2 halves - from 1996 solar and mobiel started to connect vialges- so abed could extend collaboratiom platforms for sdecod half of his 25 yeras- who wanted to partner with digital solution ; how coudl universities join in?it is not always well understood that abed had 4 different value chain partnerships to lead on behalf of wmens sustained livelihoods

1 vilage

100k vilage

national leader

global keadership

during 1986-2008 abed focused on deisgning 14 nation leading enterprsiesd an agricultural nation like bangaldesh needs to integrate around the poorest as well as other natioal leaeading isnitutions brac university, brac bank; he had been asked to share his solutions worldwide probably as early as 2000 bt rs steve jobs; but he needed to take time to find teh oerfect second brac internatioanl headquaretrs (a bangadesh ngo cant fundraise for international sevices); after piloting offices partenrships in usa and Uk he settled ffor netherlands as his main HQ - there are a lot of raesons why this became an optimal choice- how many can you thinks of - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

abed's last 12 yeras - 2007-2019 is when i was lucky enough to visit bangaldesh up to twice a yera - so the global collabs he formed in hsi last 12 yeras particulary the goial of 100 asian university partenrships each designing one huge scaling solutions all asian grads could share are a focal interest of abedmooc as are the final collab platforms bottom righ which abed asked friends to make his legacy
