Tk 1b loan to be disbursed among women entrepreneurs: Commerce Minister

tofail_65071Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed has announced that Tk 1 billion (100 crore) loan will be disbursed among the women entrepreneurs to make them self-reliant from their backward position. The minister said the government would like to provide more assistance to the women entrepreneurs for the sake of balanced and steady economic growth of the womenfolk. He made the announcement while addressing a programme after formally inaugurating the month long 8th International Women’s SME Expo Bangladesh-14 in Polo Ground in Chittagong on Saturday evening. Tofail said Bangladesh will become a middle income country by 2021 if women, who constitute half of the country’s population, become successful entrepreneurs. He hoped that the annual current 22b US dollar earning from RMG sector will turn into nearly $50b within 2021 if the existing trend continues. He also called upon the business entrepreneurs to put in integrated efforts to turn Bangladesh into number one readymade garment (RMG) exporting country across the globe toppling China, according to a news agency.
