Agricultural Credit Program

Agriculture is the prime sectors of Bangladesh's economy. Unfortunately this sector is highly neglected by the mainstream financial institutions. Our marginal and small farmers have been facing a lot of problems such as technical knowledge, financial supports, access to market for selling their produces, market information etc. Farmers could contribute more in agriculture sector if they get financial supports from the financial institutions during production period. Keeping all these issues in mind, Padakhep is implementing appropriate program to reduce dependency on the money lenders, increase the agricultural productivity, improve the livelihood and ensure food security through providing credit and technical assistance to the marginal and small farmers. Over time, producers are increasingly attracted towards this credit program. Padakhep provides agricultural credit mainly in crop, fishery and livestock sub-sectors.
