Microfinance is the core programme of BASTOB. The main aim of this programme is to create employment opportunities and increase the income of the programme participants. The Microfinance programme of BASTOB reached . . . .30,865 families upto June 2018. To alleviate the poverty of the disadvantaged section of the society, microfinance has been assisting the poor effectively in improving their living status and livelihood. Since the poor people cannot afford any collateral against their loan, the microfinance services from a Microfinance Institution (MFI) are their only hope to get loan in an easy way without collateral.
