father goldsmith-jeweler, merchant = Surya-yuti-Zukra, receives disciplining, work-ethic drishti of Shani

Chandra * matrikaraka

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Budha-Karkata yuti Mangala-Karkata * nichha

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha-Karkata yuti Mangala-Karkata * nichha

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * kalatra-karaka * svadhu-karaka

Zukra rules bhava-4 and bhava-4 receives the drishti of BOTH nichha-Shani and nichha-Mangala

Shani drishti to (1) Zukra bandhupathi and (2) bhava-4. Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus * designed the system for addressing the plight of those ravaged by poverty that provides micro-credit loans to the poorest agricultural women, enabling their prosperity while they remain in the bondage to the land.

Zukra-12 rules childhood home. Yunus grew surrounded by the deep poverty and pervasive violence of Bangladesh, but autobiographically he recalls a pleasant childhood filled with books. His mother was emotionally disordered Chandra-yuti-Ketu however the ruler of 4 in 12 is not harmful and the fact that he achieved a PhD also attests to the stability of the homelife.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani rules bhava-10 and bhava-10 receives the drishti of BOTH nichha-Shani and nichha-Mangala

Shani in Bharani nakshatra suggests a heavy obligation to work with mani-money

Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus * * nichha Shani-10 rules contracts-7 and revolutionary transformation-8. Professor Yunus created a type of contract which catered to the extremely poor and destitute subsistence farmers (nichha-Shani bottom ranks) in his notoriously corrupt (nichha-Shani) homeland of Bangladesh. As a professor of economics, he understood the economic system (Shani rules 11th from 10) built on racism and bloodlines. His methods used extremely small amounts of capital (Shani) to build agricultural wealth very, very slowly (Shani). Also Shani drishti upon Zukra vriddhipathi.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus created loan contracts for microloans. The contracts were negotiated between the poorest of the poor agricultural women (often a group of such women) and the lending bank. Not only had this category of person (impoverished women, acting independently of their husbands) never been seen as eligible to enter a legal contract; also the contracts could be made between the bank and a collective group. Other features of the women's status, such as their subservience to their husbands per religious law, remained in effect. However for the purpose of this single loan contract, they were elevated to the status of legal promissory signatories. Lacking literacy, they made an alternative sign (alternative Rahu-produces effects of Budha signs).
