  • 5. Executive SummeryTo be a medium income nation during the next decade, meeting the millennium developmentgoals (2015) and Vision 2021, the present government is trying to build a sound socio-economicinfrastructure. In doing so, the government initiatives for planning, organizing and controllingthe various sectors of the economy triggers the overall economic growth rate already. Thegovernment provides a separate policy towards SME credit disbursement mentioned earlier forbetter functioning of the sector. Most of the private and public commercial banks are playing roleby disbursing credit amount to the potential entrepreneurs for better doing and sound businessfunctions.Here in this report we have tried to find the impact of SME loan in satisfying the basic needs ofthe credit holders. We have tried to focus on the five major basic need i.e. food , education,medical, accommodation. We have tried to show how the income of people influences thesevariables.For the data analysis we have surveyed the loan holders with a questioners where we haveselected 35 borrower among 120 borrowers of Dhaka city(Jatrabari to Uttara) and we have usednon-probability sampling with convenient method for convenience. In case of data analysis wehave used MS office and excel tools.From the study, it is found that 85.71 per cent of credit holders belong to the group of increasedincome and only a negligible number (14.28) of credit holders are with no changes of incomegroup. But ultimately we have found most of the persons are satisfied with SME loan. 5
  • 6. II Report PartChapter- 011.1. IntroductionIn recent times, small and medium Enterprises (SMEs) have come into the forefront ofdevelopment agenda due to the recognition of their contribution in fostering growth, sustainingglobal economic recovery, generating employment and reducing poverty (OECD, 2004). SEAF(2004) report identifies a number of channels through which SMEs can have positive impact onpoverty reduction. Growth of SMEs can reduce poverty through income generation, employmentgeneration ultimately acceleration of economic growth.Empirical studies find that the share of SMEs in GDP is significantly higher in high incomecountries. A cross country study (Ayyagari et al, 2003) shows that SMEs account for over 51percent of GDP and 57 percent of employment in high income countries while the correspondingfigures for low income countries are 16 and 18 percent. This reveals the importance of SME ingrowth and employment generation.1.2 Background of the studyDespite high dependence on agriculture, other sectors are growing significantly in Bangladesh.Over the years, share of agriculture in GDP is declining with services being the drivers ofgrowth. Manufacturing sector in Bangladesh has been contributing at a consistent rate over thelast decade to around 15 percent. SMEs in manufacturing and services combined have 19 percentshare of GDP. A nationwide survey claims that Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs)value addition accounts for 20 to 25 percent of Bangladesh‟s GDP (Daniel, 2003). Theseenterprises are accommodating more than 30 million people aged 15 years and above. Therefore,SME sector deserves more attention and focus to foster growth and generate employment.However, the greatest potential of employment creation is among the SMEs involved inmanufacturing. SMEs in manufacturing are important for the developed countries as well(Baldwin and Picot, 1994) since growth of SME in manufacturing sector creates disproportionate 6
  • 7. amount of net employment because of its labour intensive character. However, SME inBangladesh is dominated by trading. The key reasons for SMEs not entering the manufacturingsector in a major way are financial constraints, dismal state of utilities and government policydiscriminations (CPD, 2003). Nonetheless, the role of SME in employment generation andpoverty reduction has been well recognized in the PRSP (GOB, 2002).The present government has put much emphasis on the development of SME sector consideringit as “The driving force for industrialization” in meeting the goal of 10 per cent growth*, 40 percent contribution of industrial sector to gross domestic production (GDP)* and for being amedium income nation within the next decade. With a view to reducing income inequality,poverty and high rate of unemployment in densely populated Bangladesh, the SME sector mightbe much better functioned by a towering rate of credit flow in this sector.Source: election manifesto of Bangladesh Awami League, 2008.Financial and development assistance designed especially for small and medium enterprises inBangladesh is a new and upcoming trend. After the surge of micro-finance in the last twodecades, small and medium enterprises have come to the limelight in the financial sector onaccount of their contribution to economy and yet limited access to finance. Both micro-financeinstitutions and banks are beginning to realize the potential of this market and designing newfinancial products for it. National Bank Limited started providing credit to small and mediumenterprises in 2009 in recognition of their special needs.This paper looks at the impact of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) loan on National BankLimited credit holders in satisfying their basic needs. The analysis reveals that credit holders cansatisfy their basic needs i.e. food, accommodation, children‟s education, medical facilities moresuccessfully than before as their income has increased. 7
  • 8. 1.3 Definition of SME:The term „SME‟ comprises the following: 1) Small Enterprises and 2) Medium Enterprises.Small Enterprises:Small Enterprise refers to the firm/business which is not a public limited company. A firm orbusiness might be characterized as small enterprises if the following criteria are satisfied: Serial No. Sector Fixed Asset other than Employed Manpower Land and Building (not above) (Tk.) 1. Service 50,000-50,00,000 25 2. Business 50,000-50,00,000 25 3. Industrial 50,000-15,000,000 50Source: Bangladesh Bank (Small and Medium Enterprises Credit Policies and Programmes,2010)Medium Enterprises:Medium Enterprise refers to the establishment/firm which is not a public limited company. Anestablishment or a firm might be pointed out as medium enterprises when the following criteriaare met: Serial No. Sector Fixed Asset other than Employed Manpower Land and Building (Tk.) (not above) 1. Service 50,00,000-10,00,00,000 50 2. Business 50,00,000-10,00,00,000 50 3. Industrial 1,50,00,000-20,00,00,000 150Source: Bangladesh Bank (Small and Medium Enterprises Credit Policies and Programs, 2010) 8
  • 9. 1.4 Problem Statement:The small and medium enterprises have not been able to fully build up due to various socio-economic hindrances .Moreover; sometimes credit holders can‟t utilize their loan amount as theyuse it in other purpose rather than using the credit in business, sometimes the sanctioned amountis not enough to contribute in their business as well as in their income generation where incomeis very closely associated with basic needs of a person. So here this paper looks at the impactof Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) loan on National Bank Limited credit holders inincome generation and satisfying their basic needs.1.5 Objective:In this study, we will try to find out the impacts of SME credit on individuals who are the SMEcredit taker in the context of National bank Ltd. The objectives of the study are the followings: Ø Are there any changes occurred in terms of  Income and savings pattern;  Quality Food Intake, Education, Medical Services and Accommodation after taking credit? Ø Are there any stresses found in repayment of the credit amount? 9

Have your monthly income changed?From the study, it is found that 85.71 per cent of credit holders belong to the group of increasedincome and only a negligible number (14.28) of credit holders are with no changes of incomegroup.( Figure: 07) Figure 07: Credit Holders Income StatusSource: Author‟s Calculation 19

Among the 35entrepreneurs, most of them experienced 30 per cent and more than increase of their income.(Figure: 08) Figure 08: Pre and post Income levelSource: Author’s CalculationThree (3) of them experienced a slightly less than twenty (20) per cent increase of their incomelevel. Unfortunately, five (5) of them cannot do any form of increments of their income level.(Figure: 08). 20
  • 21. 9. If increase or decrease, what would be the Percentage Figure 09: percent change in incomeThe authors thought about the failure of the increments of their income may be noted as:  Either they expended the loan amount for other family purpose  Or there exist some inefficiencies of proper managing the credit amount.10. Do you think that SME loan has helped to change your standard of living?Standard of Living Indicators: Relationship with IncomeStandard of living is a multidimensional concept and is generally measured by standards such asincome per person. Other measures such as access and quality of health care, quality food intake,better accommodation facilities and educational standards are also used. It is the ease by whichpeople living in a time or place are able to satisfy their needs and/or wants.Persistent poverty and malnutrition are present in Bangladesh, despite its otherwise strikingeconomic growth in recent years. About half of the countrys population cannot afford anadequate diet. Here the humble signs of improvement are indicated by long term trends in the 21
  • 22. overall incidence of poverty in Bangladesh. About one quarter of the population in Bangladeshmaintain a precarious existence -- chronically underfed and highly vulnerable.In this backdrop, the need for targeted incomes to ensure minimum standard of living is required.In this regard, the current government provides a separate SME policy and allocated a handsometotal of credit for this sector‟s sound environment for ensuring rapid economic growth andoverall standard of living.11. Have any improvement occurred in case of your children‟s education?Income and education:Education is fundamental to the development of Bangladesh. The Government has placed a highpriority on it; particularly at the primary school level. Bangladesh conforms fully to theEducation For All (EFA) objectives, the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) andinternational declarations. Article 17 of the Bangladesh Constitution provides that all childrenbetween the ages of six and ten years receive a basic education free of charge.But the real picture is different; 6 percent of children do not enroll in the school and the dropoutrate of primary school students is 23.6 per cent that means around 30 per cent of students do notcomplete primary education and engage as a wage laborer.Source: USAID, 2010, collected from the website of USAID (http://www.usaid.gov/bd/programs/education.html).But why is this high dropout rate? Why is this child labor?The most apparent answer might be the poverty or more specifically poor income of the family,may trigger the children to dropout from the school and bound them to engage in wage laboring.Table 07: Standard Of Living Indicators & Their Corresponding % no. of Credit Holders Standard Of Living Indicators & Their Corresponding % no. of Credit Holders Educatio Medical & Health Accommodati Quality Food Overall Standard Status n Facilities on Intake of Living Improved 51.42 31.42 20 14.285 29.28125 Some Improvemen ts 34.28 48.57 74.28 68.57 56.425 No Changes 14.285 20 5.71 17.14 14.28375Source: Author’s calculation. 22

Figure 10: Standard of Living StatusIn our study, it is observed that 51.42 percent respondents‟ children experienced better educationfacilities than the earlier period of having poor income of the family head. 34.28 per cent ofrespondents‟ children enjoyed some improvement of the education facilities. Due to no changesin income level, there are 14.28 percent respondents with no improvement of their children‟seducation.12. Have you experienced any changes in your food intake?Income and quality food intake:According to the World Bank, approximately 33 million of the 160 million people inBangladesh cannot afford an average daily intake of more than 1800 kilocalories (theminimum standard for nutrition as set by the World Food Program). For people in mostdeveloping countries, the daily calorie average is 2,828. In Bangladesh, that average is only2,190.Poor income level is the major factor effecting food security in Bangladesh. Despite the foodprice hike and much more complexities with living, there observed in our study that around15 per cent credit holders are taking some sorts of quality food than the earlier period of no 23

  • 25. 14. Have any improvement occurred in case of medical and health facilities?Income and Health Facilities:Socio-economic development for all citizens is the heart of Bangladesh‟s Constitution.According to the articles 15-18 in part II of the Constitution, the State has the responsibility toensure to its citizens certain basic needs such as health.Due to poor earnings, the backward inhabitants are always discriminated with having meagerfacilities of health services. The government is still not capable of being able to provide healthservices to all the citizens due to not only inadequate resources but also a poor management. Ourstudy shows that an approximate 31.42 per cent of respondents could improve their healthfacilities with their newly generated income from proper managing of the credit they took fromNational bank. A 48.57 per cent of credit holders bring fortune himself with some improvementsin health services. On the other hand, a 20 per cent of credits holders are not so perfectly manageto have a better fortune for them.15. Have any improvement occurred in case of your accommodation?Income and Accommodation:As a densely populated country, Bangladesh has one of the lowest land-person ratios. Thescenario for the capital city is shoddier than other cities in domestic and even abroad in case ofquality and chief accommodation simultaneously.High (housing) price is to accept for a better and safe accommodation for the most of theinhabitants in Dhaka city. But, with a negligible income no one can lead such life. Always theyare to fight for living.In our study of impact of SME credit on the credit holders of national bank in terms of basicneeds, it is found that twenty (20) per cent of respondents have experience a handsomeimprovement of accommodation with their higher income than pre-credit period followed by 25

In contrast’ 11% said they will nottake SME loan again at any condition as they are not capable of coping with the systems and procedureand it was not helpful to them 29
  • 30. Chapter – 4: Conclusions and Recommendation:4.1. Conclusion:Innovations in addressing the credit market failures faced by poor households throughmicrofinance have been a major development breakthrough of recent times. Recent realization ofthe need of micro finance government has encourage and force financial institutions to introduceand stimulating SME financingMany microfinance providers in Bangladesh have started providing enterprise finance targeted atthe small enterprises. Formal banks have also started operating in this market and National bankLtd was one of them.The studies reviewed reveal that SME loan is provided to almost establish organization andaverage age of loan holders is 36.25 where average loan size is 2.55 lacs.Financing SMEs as a core business is still relatively new for formal financial providers inBangladesh. This is fundamentally different to microfinance. Though there are some problems inpolicy, disbursement and collection as well as monitoring it is observed that most of the creditholders have benefited from it.If further improvements in the sanctioning and other administrative procedures affecting SMEs;simplification, transparency, and accountability are established SME can be a feat financial toolfor economic development. 30
  • 31. 4.2. Recommendations:  Only Tk.26000000 of credit disbursed by National bank in Dhaka city up to December, 2010 and in the mean time about Tk.50, 00,000 is recovered. So, the net disbursement is only Tk. 1, 50, 00,000. Since there observed a favorable atmosphere of impressive standard of living after having SME credit, the authority might spread the ‘credit net’ for ensuring rapid SME development and thereby strengthen the social safety net program.
