    Part One: Reading and Interpreting(15Pts)
    Read the following text carefully then do the tasks

    Muhammad Yunus
    Muhammad Yunus has had exceptional success helping people get themselves out of poverty in rural Bangladesh by providing them with credit without requiring guarantee. Yunus developed his revolutionary micro-credit system with the belief that it would be a cost effective and scalable weapon to fight poverty.
    Yunus told his story and that of the bank in the book "Banker to the Poor," co-authored by him and Alan Jolis. In the book, Yunus recalls that in 1974 he was teaching economics at a Chittagong University in southern Bangladesh, when the country experienced a terrible famine in which thousands starved to death.
    "We tried to ignore it," he says. "But then skeleton-like people began showing up in the capital, Dhaka. Soon the drop became a flood. Hungry people were everywhere. Often they sat so still that one could not be sure whether they were alive or dead. They all looked alike: men, women and children. Old people looked like children, and children looked like old people.
    Yunus went to the nearby village of Jobra where he learned the economic realities of the poor. Yunus wanted to help, and he cooked up several plans working with his students. He found that one of his many ideas was more successful than the rest: offering people tiny loans for self-employment. Grameen Bank was born and an economic revolution had begun.
    Muhammad Yunus won the Peace Nobel Prize in 2006. He, indeed, deserves this award for his humanitarian actions towards the poor.
