Mortgage for Women

Brand a bank which caters mortgages only to women. Sounded crazy here however, Women are more reliable and I believe their mortgage rate should be better.

On the same subject, I am very happy to see that Muhammad Yunus has won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize. My favorite sentence which goes deep into "people first" is:
"It's not people who aren't credit-worthy. It's banks that aren't people worthy."
"Conventional banks ask their clients to come to their office…. The entire Grameen Bank system runs on the principle that people should not come to the bank, the bank should go to the people. ... "
