What is Bank Asia Agriculture Loan?

Agriculture remains the most important sector of Bangladesh’s economy. Overall economic development of the country is dependent on the agriculture sector. It is inevitable that the food security of the country can be insured only through the expansion of this prioritized sector. However, as widely identified, one of the major constraints that have been hindering sustainable growth and development of this sector is the scarcity of funds amongst poor farmers. Recognizing this and also to facilitate the same, Bank Asia has been providing agricultural credit since its inception. The credit facility has been distributed through direct and indirect channels.
