Facts in Brief
The People’s Republic of Bangladesh lies in southern Asia. Bangladesh was formerly East Pakistan, one of five provinces into which Pakistan was divided when the United Kingdom’s former Indian Empire was partitioned in 1947. In 2001 Sheikh Hasina Wajed became the first Prime Minister to complete a five-year term of office. The Government of Khaleda Zia stepped down in October 2006, having also completed a full term. Sheikh Hasina Wajed began a second term of office in January 2009. Parliamentary elections in January 2014, in which the ruling Awami League won a large majority, were marred by an opposition boycott led by Khaleda Zia’s Bangladesh Nationalist Party. The capital is Dhaka. Bengali is the state language..

Muhammad Yunus (1940-...), a Bangladeshi banker, pioneered the idea of microcredit, in which small loans—typically in sums between $50 and $100—are made to poor people. Yunus won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 along with the microcredit bank he founded, the Grameen Bank. Yunus continues to write and speak on microcredit as a way to reduce international poverty.
