Farmers Bank Ltd’s Gopalganj branch was inaugurated by video conference on December 24, 2015. Gopalganj is their 37th branch in two years and seven months of operation. It is a commendable achievement and it was my pleasure to be part of their journey. Farmers practices green banking and working towards financial inclusion of 73% of population which is still out of schedule banking network. For Gopalganj Farmer’s will have my all out support in addition to where ever we can be of assistance for democratization of banking.
As a director elect of Bangladesh’s apex business body; Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FBCCI), I shared various innovative programs we are working on for district chambers’ capacity building, advocacy for single digit financing for district entrepreneurs and our newly formed research wing to better contribute in our economy. Farmers team was happy to learn of our initiatives and extended their support towards FBCCI programs. Our best wishes to Farmers Bank Limited.
