Iqbal Quadir tells how his experiences as a kid in poor Bangladesh, and
later as a banker in New York, led him to start a mobile phone operator
connecting 80 million rural Bangladeshi -- and to become a champion of
bottom-up development.

This video includes interesting statistics and is good for advocacy.
