Micro-credit is transforming the lives of women in Bangladesh.

A printer-friendly version of this page 24 minutes
Directed by Michael Sheridan
Produced by Oxfam America

COMMUNITY looks at the dramatic story of villagers in Bangladesh who have transformed themselves from beggars to business people with the help of micro-credit loans. At the same time the loans have enabled positive new roles and relationships for men and women to come into being.

One women's group now owns a rice mill, another makes roof tiles, and a men's group runs a fish farm. The money raised is held collectively to benefit the entire group. The video presents a compelling story of positive long-term change that comes with women's participation in community affairs.
