Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy In Bangladesh''s rural economy, traditionally agriculture is a dominant sector. However, in recent years, the rural nonfarm sector is increasingly playing an important role in the rural economic growth.Most of such rural nonfarm activities operate as microenterprises. In 2013, there were 7 million nonfarm microenterprises employing 14 million people. Given the scale of employment, the rural nonfarm sector can play a significant role in Bangladesh's overall economic growth and poverty reduction.
Impact Growth of microenterprises expanded to provide forward linkages to agriculture and generate job opportunities (National Sustainable Development Strategy, 2010- 2021)a
Outcome Microenterprises'' access to MFI financing increased.
Outputs

Funding to MFIs for microenterprise loans expanded.
