Bangladesh is a country which is placed among the top poor countries of the world. One fourth of its total population are still living below poverty line. The condition of women specially rural women are not good. We can say easily in Bangladesh women are poorer of the poor. But they are trying overcome poverty by using different strategies. The present research shows four strategies that help these women overcome poverty. These are economic, human, natural and socio-cultural capital related strategies. Cultivable land, domestic animals, small business, micro-credit, other income sources, such as van, rickshaw etc. are identified as economic capital. Human capital means a persons education, skill, creativity, labour etc. Collecting fishes and snails, water lily, lotus from the ponds and by collecting fishes and vegetables are considered as natural capital. Socio-cultural capital is related to social relation, culture and custom, tradition, norms and formalities.
