After sixteen years of wearing uniforms in the Bangladesh Army Moin Chowdhury opted for voluntary retirement and pursued his MBA from Cass Business School, City University, London. Post MBA, he worked as a Principal Consultant for an American company, Frost & Sullivan, in its London office prior to deciding to return to Bangladesh and apply his skills for the companies based there.

In 2009, Moin joined Shanta Holdings Ltd, one of the biggest real estates in Bangladesh, as the Head of Compliance. In 2013, Moin was appointed as the Director of Finance for the Maxwell Stamp Plc- UK and worked for Department for International Development (DFID) projects for 05 years. During this time he had managed the finances and administration of DFID-Bangladesh’s flagship, award-winning extreme poverty reduction intervention, the Chars Livelihoods Programme (CLP2 £82.7M), that has been known to change the lives of 01 million poor families in the North Western part of Bangladesh. In 2016, as the Project Manager, Moin has managed two more DFID funded projects in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance, Bangladesh. In those projects, his work capacity allowed him the scope to manage all administrative and financial activities.

Moin joined Grameen Kalyan in November 2018. It has been a tremendously interesting journey so far! He believes in the principles of “Equal Health Care for All” and embraces this as a charter in the everyday work that Grameen Kalyan carries out in the most remote and hard-to-reach places of Bangladesh. No matter what function he undertakes, he shares a common philosophy with the Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, of making a difference to somebody’s life and helping them find their voice.
