Dr Abdu Mukhtar
Founder & Chairman Grassroot Microfinance Bank
Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.
Dr Abdu Mukhtar’s career shows that it is possible to not only make a living doing what you love, but at the same time to have an impact on society. Coupling his passion with a knack for hard work and continual self-development, no problem or challenge has proven too big for him. “I see problems and struggles as opportunities for growth. Obstacles are actually stepping stones for doing things better or creating new ways of doing things. In fact, problems make me excited because I love challenges, and I know that they will make me stronger, bigger and better.”
