Poverty is a big issue in Bangladesh. It keeps getting worse. About half of the people there live in poverty, which means they don't have enough money for a good life. There are many reasons for this. There are too many people, and not enough jobs or land to go around. Many people can't read or write, and they believe in things that aren't true. This leads to problems like fighting and not having a stable government. People can't find work, and there's a lot of cheating and favoritism.
Because of poverty, people do bad things like stealing and hurting others. This causes a lot of problems and confusion. Many kids and moms are sick because they don't have enough to eat. The government gives some money to old people, and they give special cards to poor people in villages so they can help themselves. Non-government groups also try to help. They give small loans to poor people so they can start businesses and make money. Some of these groups are Grameen Bank, ASA, BRAC, Proshika, and TMS. They work hard to get rid of poverty.
