"The Test of Poverty" follows two women living in extreme poverty in West Bengal, India, as they participate in Trickle Up's program and work to change the effects that generations of poverty have had on their families' lives. The film shows that addressing the needs of the ultra-poor -those living on less than $1.25 day- involves more than just providing them with capital, and must be viewed through a wider lens. The film also captures the powerful effects that increased self‐confidence and empowerment that come from participating in Trickle Up's program have in helping women break the vicious cycle of extreme poverty.




"The Test of Poverty" was directed by Gautam Bose and produced with support from the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP), which is spearheading a global effort to understand how safety nets, livelihoods, and microfinance can be sequenced to create pathways for the poorest to graduate out of extreme poverty.




"The Test of Poverty" shows how Trickle Up helps the ultra-poor holistically and with lasting results.
