At the March 24, 2011 Breakfast Seminar, Prashant Rana from Swisscontact presented on Katalyst, a Making Markets Work for the Poor (M4P) project. According to the Donor Committee for Enterprise Development, “the central idea [of M4P] is that the poor are dependent on market systems for their livelihoods. Therefore changing those market systems to work more effectively and sustainably for the poor will improve their livelihoods and consequently reduce poverty.”

Prashant Rana's presentation illustrates how Swisscontact's Katalyst Program in Bangladesh uses markets to benefit low-income populations.
