Bangladesh Bank Governor Dr Atiur Rahman has gone few steps forward on his endeavour to make banking sector more pro-poor as he highly criticised the country's banks and financial institutions for their lukewarm approach to the poorer section of the society.


The governor in his keynote speech at a seminar, held in the Kenya's capital Nairobi last week, shared his views on the 'banking for poor issue' with a distinguished global audience when he admitted that his own country was lagging behind in providing poorer people with basic banking and financial services.

Dr Atiur, chief of the country's banking and financial sector's watchdog, said the banks and other financial institutions in Bangladesh had been depriving poor people of basic financial services, keeping them trapped in a poverty cycle.

"Despite substantial bank branch expansion and emergence of micro-finance institutions, scant access to basic financial services still remains a deprivation suffered by large segments of the poorer rural and urban population in Bangladesh, more hurtful than other deprivations in restricting opportunities of freeing themselves from the poverty trap", he observed.

He found that the expansion of rural branches of banks and promotion of co-operative societies benefited only the better off rural elite, when the broad masses of illiterate, innumerate rural poor remained out of financial services.

"The co-operatives tended to fall prey to 'elite capture' by powerful local groups uninterested in diluting control by enrolling poorer masses in large numbers. Rural branches of banks focused mainly on crop loans to farmers, their lending models were not geared towards reaching out to the poorer landless illiterate unable to handle the paperwork involved in bank borrowing," said Dr Atiur.

The governor, however, cited the Grameen Bank's micro-finance as a tool in extending credit services to the rural poor, but he said the financial coverage was still incomplete, with gaps both at the lowest end and at some patches up the income ladder.

Dr Atiur, who has already initiated a vigorous approach to make banking services available to the deprived people, said financial inclusion of the important segment of the society would result in more equitable economic growth.

The central bank, under his leadership, has already allocated Taka 11,500 crore for farm sector and another Taka 500 crore for the sharecroppers, who had never been offered such financial facility from the traditional banking sector.

The disbursement of the huge soft loan to sharecroppers will begin next month, bringing in a large number of people under the necessary banking services for the first time in the country's history.

Thousands of farmers will also start getting easy loan in October from the country's highest ever allocation of Taka 11,500 crore to revamp agri- sector aimed at achieving food security.

But still, Dr Atiur feels the necessity for certain rules and regulations for ensuring banking services to the poor people, who in fact, represent the majority of the population.

Dr Atiur apparently advocated precise policy measures to ensure poor people's access to the basic financial services. He referred to the existing rules and regulations in the United States and the United Kingdom to strengthen his gesture.

"Basic financial services including deposit, payments and credit services are recognised as entitlements of all citizens; particularly in advanced economies [US has a federal law prohibiting discrimination by banks against lower income neighbourhoods, and some state laws requiring banks to offer basic accounts for low cost banking services, UK have government programmes promoting financial inclusion], the governor noted.

Dear Zasheem (Grameen Glasgow)


I know that on Yunus British Council day in London in July you introduced Dr Yunus to part of the homeless world cup team


Here are various snippets of news about fifa etc I have heard; dont know if they connect but thought it was worth logging them in one place

Saskia and Hans of grameen creative lab http://www.grameencl.com  told sofia http://londoncreativelabs.com  and me when we visited them in wiesbaden that dr yunus made a video to fifa in july while giving the mandela birthday lecture asking that s.africa world cup 2010 co-celebrated african's race to end poverty. Moreover Adidas is one of the GlobalGrameen celebration partners in berlin in November and are


It is my understanding that asking global brand ceos to get sports organisers like fifa and olympics to celebrate 2010s joy of life & millennium goals decade will be part of dr yunus continuous summits with global brand ceos starting in berlin in november. The London Olympics having already promised to be the sustainability olympics is something that I expect UK sustainability and yunus fans eg sofia and paul rose www.paulrose.org  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8130130.stm to be connecting ideas round. In fact since 2004 some of my friends have been building momentim towards demanding the bbc give equal share of voice to sustainability issues as it does to sports or expect a licence fee revolt. Of course there are many ways to try and econourage the positive side by 2012, but the BBC has been appalingly late to question system collapsing issues from the people's side in the way that the world's largest social business broadcaster ought to do. 


It is also notable that Grameen Danone's superstar ambassador is french footballer Zidane -if my french is correct zidane is also convening an under 12 year olds world cup in s.africa next year http://www.lhebdojournal.com/article-377911-Un-6e-camp-Danone-au-Stade-de-lUQTR.html

Typical story - rolling stone

 Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing.

Back in 2006, as a deal manager at the gigantic bank, Fleischmann first witnessed, then tried to stop, what she describes as "massive criminal securities fraud" in the bank's mortgage operations.

Thanks to a confidentiality agreement, she's kept her mouth shut since then. "My closest family and friends don't know what I've been living with," she says. "Even my brother will only find out for the first time when he sees this interview." 

Six years after the crisis that cratered the global economy, it's not exactly news that the country's biggest banks stole on a grand scale. That's why the more important part of Fleischmann's story is in the pains Chase and the Justice Department took to silence her.

She was blocked at every turn: by asleep-on-the-job regulators like the Securities and Exchange Commission, by a court system that allowed Chase to use its billions to bury her evidence, and, finally, by officials like outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, the chief architect of the crazily elaborate government policy of surrender, secrecy and cover-up. "Every time I had a chance to talk, something always got in the way," Fleischmann says.

This past year she watched as Holder's Justice Department struck a series of historic settlement deals with Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America. The root bargain in these deals was cash for secrecy. The banks paid big fines, without trials or even judges – only secret negotiations that typically ended with the public shown nothing but vague, quasi-official papers called "statements of facts," which were conveniently devoid of anything like actual facts.
