SME Banking

SME Loan from Dhaka Bank

Inclusive finance has become a strong force for a change towards sustainable development. Blending business with more rural and SME finance is another way of achieving sustainability. We have coloured our mind with this vision and have kept up colouring the nation since introduction of SME Banking in 2013. To support Small & Medium Enterprises, Dhaka Bank has widened its network up to the rural frontiers with a country-wide reach of Branches, SME & business centres, alternative delivery channels (ADC) and so on. With as many as 17 products, we have blended together small businesses, medium enterprise, women entrepreneurs, cottage industry, agricultural farmers, renewal energy and eco-friendly brick kilns among more than 5,000 entrepreneurs.

Note:  If a firm belongs to one more categories (business segment) on any criterion, the same will be deemed as   belonging to  the ‘larger’ category.
