SME FINANCING

OVERVIEW

With a vision to take banking solutions to the ‘unbanked’ small and medium enterprises (SME) BRAC Bank Limited, commenced its journey as a scheduled commercial bank in 2001. Taking inspiration from its parent organization, BRAC, the world’s largest NGO, BRAC Bank introduced small ticket loans to bring the grassroots entrepreneurs under the umbrella of formal banking. World Bank Group’s IFC and Netherlands-based FMO are major partners of BRAC Bank in offshore banking and SME financing. BRAC Bank is the only active member of Global Banking Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) from Bangladesh, an international platform for sustainable and responsible banking practices. Governance, compliance, ethics, transparency and accountability are the cornerstones of the bank’s banking model. Today, BRAC Bank is the first Bangladeshi bank that has crossed USD 1 billion market capitalization. The banking model of BRAC Bank is firmly built on three steadfast pillars of People-Planet-Profit. Our business operation is thoroughly aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, an ambition that is also our national priority. BRAC Bank’s unique SME Banking services and products provide access to finance to the cottage, micro and small enterprises that were previously left out from the traditional commercial banking system. We have the highest rural penetration with 75% of our total Small Business loans going to the rural areas. BRAC Bank is the largest financier of collateral free loan in the country with 50% market share in this segment. Impact Measurement Study on SME financing revealed that the bank had created more than 1.5 million new employments in the course of its Small Business Financing and played a pivotal role to the improvement of the standard of living of the borrowers. Since its inception in 2001, the bank has disbursed more than USD 5 billion to more than 650,000 SME entrepreneurs across the country and has contributed significantly, to the socio economic development of Bangladesh.


As Bangladesh graduates to a developing country, BRAC Bank’s Women’s Banking Solutions, TARA, aims play a significant role in bringing women into the mainstream financial system. TARA already has 2,900 women SME business customers and more than 200,000 deposit customers. BRAC Bank’s subsidiary, bKash Limited, takes financial services to 30 million people providing money transfer, transactional and micro-saving services with its presence in each and every village of the country As a values-based bank, our investment propositions are steered in consideration with the impacts of our footprint in the community, environment as well as on the well-being of the surrounding. As a result, we strongly advocate gender parity, financial inclusion, environment-friendly investment/services, women empowerment through diverse networks. These values are intricately embedded into the DNA of our operations. Not only do we facilitate and promote sustainability but we also discourage financing business activities that pose a significant threat to the environment and society as a whole. Which is why we have no appetite for industries such as shipbuilding, tobacco and environmentally harmful business like tanneries and brick manufacturing sector.
