Community Development Program

Microfinance services alone cannot boost the living standards of small farmers. That is why Small Farmers Agriculture Cooperatives Ltd. (SFACLs) have conducted many programs for the overall development of small farmers by using their own resources, as well as with financial assistance from the government. Programs include:

  • Mass Orientation

  • Social programs on education

  • Health 

  • Drinking water

  • Environmental conservation

  • Maternal and infant welfare 

  • Construction of bridges

  • Roads, schools and community buildings

  • Irrigation facilities

  • Reforestation

  • Technology Transfer

These programs are implemented with the voluntary labour of farmers and the financial resources of SFACLs. Two-thirds (~67%) of community development program Cost management by SFACLs and small farmer communities , while one-third (~33%) is provided SKBBL and externally. As of July 2019, approximately 1.2 millions households benefited from 2447 community development activities.
