This chapter examines how NGO governmentality manifests in Bangladesh through its financial services and social business enterprises (SBEs). SBEs include non-monetary essentials such as telecommunications, the Internet, packaged goods, among others. The NGOs exploit local dependencies on these services, thereby establishing a powerful, though still informal, government on Bangladeshi soil.

Keywords:   NGO governmentality, financial services, social business enterprises, telecommunications, Internet, packaged goods, local dependencies, government
