Promoting Agricultural Commercialization and Enterprises Project

This project will be implemented nationally. It aims to enhance the livelihoods of rural women and men by improving profitable business opportunities for microentrepreneurs and creating wage employment for moderately and extremely poor people. It will build on the experiences of previous development projects and scale up IFAD-supported interventions in Bangladesh.

The project will have three components:

  • financial services for microenterprises;
  • value chain development;
  • technology and product adaptation.

The target group will include microentrepreneurs and moderately or extremely poor people, particularly marginal and small farmers, and non-farm microentrepreneurs and professionals in related service sectors.
