Bangladesh Bank to form Tk 500cr start-up fund

Bangladesh Bank today decided to form a Tk 500 crore fund in order to help new entrepreneurs aged 21 years and above start businesses.

The fund will be constituted in the form of a refinance scheme, meaning banks will firstly disburse loans to clients and the banking regulator will later reimburse the fund to banks.

New entrepreneurs will be allowed to manage funds from the refinance scheme at a maximum interest rate of 4 percent and banks will get funds at 0.5 percent interest from the central bank.

The maximum repayment tenure of the fund is five years.
