The purpose of the research is to examine the possibility of introducing market-based green business development in Canada that would model that of GB and its sister organizations. This paper envisions a comparison and contrasting of Grameen Bank and Grameen Shokti credit systems (Bangladesh) with Alterna Savings credit programs (Canada) and its impact on Torontoâ€™s local living economics and environmental development. The Review shows that within the two sample cases, microcredits are positive to environmentally sustainable development.
