Poverty alleviation has been an important target for the Government especially to meet its Millennium Development Goal. Micro-credit provided by various Micro Finance Institutions both Government and Non-Government have contributed significantly for this cause. Although the number of such institutions is increasing there exists still an estimated 56 million people who are still living in poverty. This study indicated that the poverty alleviation programs of BRDB can be made more effective by generating target oriented awareness programs and attractive incentives for the employees.
