Success story made in Bangladesh

A farmers' dairy venture has thrived against all odds in a remote village for 30 years.

    To mark the United Nations' International Day of Co-operatives, Al Jazeera looks at one long-running success story in Bangladesh - Milk Vita, a thriving dairy co-operative.

    Bangladesh is home to over 60,000 non-governmental organisations (NGOs), many of which try out innovative development models and social business ventures.

    Nicolas Haque reports from the remote village of Potoazia, where Milk Vita operates.
