Micro-Finance for Agriculture in Bangladesh: Current Status and Future Potential


  • Rashid Faruqee


Increasing access to finance is still the most critical need for agricultural growth in Bangladesh. Both formal institutions (such as BKB and RAKUB) and MFIs have to play their roles in an integrated and mutually supportive way. MFIs are already playing significant role in financing agriculture, their role has increased in recent years and there is much more scope for further increase in their role in financing agriculture, if appropriate measures are taken (such as modification in operation and loan products are made and a modern management information system is introduced) to address the challenges that the agriculture sector pose and fully exploit the opportunities it offers.
