The Rasheda Trust
THE RASHEDA TRUST shows the ups and downs of the Bangladeshi entrepreneur Rasheda Begum, who rose from nothing and holds her ground in a male dominated world. Back in the eighties, Rasheda‘s family lived in extreme poverty. The only cash income came from Rasheda‘s husband Ali, who worked for a pittance as a labourer. When government officials came to the village and offered the first micro credits, Rasheda saw her chance. A success story, filmed in Bangladesh between 1993 and 2005, surprising and entertaining.
