|Title:||Bangladesh - Microfinance and Technical Support Project - December 2008|
Sujota Rani, 23, attends a women's group meeting in Ghatgatia, Bangladesh.
The Microfinance and Technical Support Project focuses on mitigating poor people's vulnerablility, improving their access to essential services, and supporting the diversification of livelihoods, particularly through livestock. The rural poor targeted by this project have limited access to land in an area affected by extreme yearly flooding. Their vulnerability is increased by dependence on moneylenders, seasonality of income, and emergences caused by illness.
Ghatgatia is located in Biswamvarpur, Bangladesh.
