Fears over Bangladesh bid to take over bank

Many are concerned about consequences of government taking control of award-winning Grameen Bank.

    The government of Bangladesh has been raising its stake in a Nobel Prize winning bank that helps poor women access small loans.
     
    A government commission has recommended breaking up the Grameen Bank into at least 19 zones but many customers are wary of a state takeover.
