As part of the Hrishipara Daily Diaries Project, MSC tracked the fluctuating income and daily transactions of Ubaydullah, who works as a brick-breaker in Bangladesh. We observed his inconsistent income and its effects on his five-person household. In this project, we discover how the poor deal with such volatility that tosses them in and out of extreme poverty. In Ubaydullah’s case, the answer may lie in his tight rein of expenditure.
