Some of the micro-borrowers in Bangladesh have benefited in certain respects. A lot of them are struggling under the stringent terms of credit including high cost of borrowing and a weekly repayment schedule starting a week after a credit is taken. Many have gone further into indebtedness and face a bleak future. The micro-borrowers face the threat of expulsion and confiscation of their assets when they fail to pay up weekly installments; and some have in fact had their meagre assets confiscated when they failed to pay up. This threat is in effect collateral.

Bangladesh has made striking progress on a range of social indicators over the last 15 years, an achievement widely credited to the country's pluralist service provision regime. Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have significantly expanded their services during this period and have shown that it is possible to scale up innovative antipoverty experiments into nationwide programs. The unique role of Bangladesh's NGOs is not confined to the delivery of social services and pro-poor advocacy.

This book, third in the series, is on the budgetary process in Bangladesh and is written from the perspective of the poor. Based on a participatory research of IDPAA, PROSHIKA and conducted by Shamunnay, the book proposes an alternative framework of a pro-poor, gender-just and environment-sensitive national budget for Bangladesh. The study finds that despite some changes, the current budget-making process is complex, inefficient and non-transparent. It argues for a set of institutions that would be necessary for creating a favourable policy for poverty reduction.

What have been the costs of a development strategy which has ignored the agrarian masses in favour of securing the political allegiance of a landed minority? With a rare clarity of vision, Prof.
