As we know, Grameen Bank (GB) is the pioneer of micro-credit movement worldwide and it is contributing enormous impact through providing collateral free loans to poor men & women. GB is not only dedicated to poverty alleviation but also empowering typically ignored rural poor women in Bangladesh. Besides this, along with micro-credit service, GB is producing an incredible success in education sector. Such as introducing Higher Education Loan program for the children of GB borrowers’ which is adding a tremendous value to the education sector in Bangladesh.
Why GB Higher Education Loan Program
In Bangladesh, access to higher education is limited mostly to children of wealthy families, and high cost and severe competition make it almost impossible for poor people to obtain higher education. With very few tertiary institutions in Bangladesh, and extremely competitive entry to the better known universities, the aspirations of many to seek higher education often remain unfilled. This GB initiative to provide loans to the children of borrowers has been a critical component in enabling them to achieve this dream. Without this support, it would have been impossible. Through this program, more than eight thousand students are obtaining higher education from different universities and colleges in various professional disciplines—and the number is growing day by day.
