Bangladesh has done wonderful in terms of reducing poverty in the country. At the end of 1971, 85% of the people were under poverty. Today, that poverty line came down to 22%, so that’s a long journey that we took.

In this model, individuals and groups not only extend economic avenues to the disadvantaged, but also enable their empowerment as members of society.
