Synopsis: With seed money borrowed from a bank, a young woman and four of her friends in Bangladesh change their lives by starting their own businesses.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4-Through fictional characters, Howard shows how five poor, uneducated women get a bank loan and start a business in Bangladesh. Their perseverance is admirable, and the similarities and contrasts between opportunities in the U.S. and those in this nation would certainly lend themselves to discussion. Illustrations show the five friends as they go about their work, against a backdrop of the countryside and village. A brief but succinct explanation of various questions readers might ask is included at the end of the book. The intended audience is questionable; while the book is written on a very simple reading level, the concepts and required background knowledge are for an older age group. Unless one's library has ample funds, this is not a necessary purchase.
