Iqbal Quadir conta como as suas experiências enquanto criança num país pobre como o Bangladesh, e mais tarde como um banqueiro em Nova York, o levaram a fundar uma operadora de telemóveis, e conectar 80 milhões de Bangladeshi nas zonas rurais — e tornando-se num campeão de desenvolvimento bottom-up.
