The specialised commercial bank has been providing loan to the affected people in agriculture and other sectors so that they can get back to their normal life after the best uses of their borrowed money, reports BSS.

The board of directors of the bank made these observations while taking part in the discussion of RAKUB’s 529th board meeting virtually on Monday with Chairman Roisul Alam Mondal in the chair.

Managing Director Ismail Hossain told the meeting that the bank is working for bringing all existing agricultural potential sectors and sub-sectors under qualitative and quantitative investments for making the region’s agro-based economy more vibrant amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
