Bangladesh is an informal community on the outskirts of Mombasa, Kenya. Residents say its name comes from the Bangladeshi man who used to own the land. People here live on a little more than a dollar a day, scraping together a living at tiny businesses.
Alfred Sigo, one of the founding members of the Bangla-Pesa, was arrested in May with Will Ruddick, Emma Onyango and three others. After four months, Kenya's public prosecutor dropped charges of bank fraud.
