The economy of Bangladesh mostly depends on rural development. Poverty stands in the way of the growth of this economy. Although a number of NGOs and financial organizations work in the sub-urban and villages with a view to alleviating poverty, a very few are found working with the compliance of Islamic Sariah. It is a national responsibility to alleviate abject poverty from the rural area. To help change the socio-economic condition of the impoverished people of the villages, Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited has initiated a project entitled "Krishi O Grameen Khudra Biniog Prokolpa (Microfinance). With this project, Bank is working for reduction of poverty, development in agricultural sectors, creation of job opportunities etc. We hope this will develop the socio-economic condition of a large segment of the rural folk.
