Grameen Bank responds to allegations in Caught in Micro Debt Documentary

Filmmaker Gayle Ferraro takes a trip to Jobra, Bangladesh, to seek what really happened to Sophia Begum, the famous bamboo stool maker whom Muhammad Yunus writes about in his books.

Tom Heinemann’s documentary “Caught in Micro Debt” falsely alleges that he talked to her daughter, and that she died in poverty, but Gayle reveals that the woman he interviewed was not her daughter and that Sophia Begum is alive and prospering.
