In this video, Syed Hashemi, a senior microfinance specialist of CGAP, talks about the effectiveness of microfinance in Bangladesh not only in terms of economic development but also social change. Elaborating this point Hashemi says that it has brought women to the economic foreground and provided better schooling facilities and legal rights to the bottom of the society. He studies BRAC, Bangladesh, which has introduced a new pathway for the poorest to graduate out of poverty by linking two aspects of development, like, food aid with the world of microfinance.
