'25pc ultra poor still deprived of micro-credit programme'
8/20/2006
 

          The micro-credit programme, a positive initiative for the poverty alleviation in the country, could not attain success in all cases.
At least 25 per cent ultra poor people of the country are still deprived of the benefits of the programme.
Speakers at a workshop on 'Role of Livestock in Improving the Quality of Lives of Ultra Poor' observed these.
The workshop was organised by BRAC and held at a city hotel Saturday, reports BDNEWS.
Afsan Chowdhury, the director of Advocacy and Human Rights Unit of BRAC, chaired the workshop while Sa'dat Hossain, Rabeya Yasmin and Sunil Chandra Ghosh, among others, addressed it.
Besides, 15 district and thana veterinary officers under special programmes also joined the workshop.
Attending the programme, the speakers said the micro-credit programme did not meet all the needs of the marginal people.
A huge section of ultra poor people has been deprived of the benefits of the programme, they added.
The officials of BRAC said, to overcome the situation, BRAC had launched a five-year special micro-credit programme from 2002 under the title 'Ultra Poor Programme.'
The programme helps nearly 0.1 million families which have become financially self-reliant by getting training on different income generating activities, including livestock rearing, they added.
The officials said , if the government assists the programme, BRAC would renew its tenure.
