SNV started in Bangladesh in 2006 to design impact-oriented and future scalable programmes to help turn poverty into prosperity. As the private sector in Bangladesh is recognised as a strong partner in economic growth and development, we focus on private sector engagement along with institutional development, and local ownership of programmes.

Bangladesh is one of the world's most densely populated countries with 160 million people, 31.5% of which live in poverty. We support people to access and develop the capabilities, services and opportunities needed to live a fulfilling life, while sustainably using the natural resources they depend on. We specialise in supporting the resourcefulness of development actors: together we make markets work for the poor.



“I feel positive that organisations such as SNV have the expertise to develop inclusive business models which allow businesses to create opportunities for sustainable development.“ Faruque Hassan, Senior Vice President of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association
