The State of Digital Microfinance in Bangladesh

The microfinance industry in Bangladesh is growing amidst renewed competition from the banking sector and new agent banking initiatives. As the industry tackles the challenges of the high cost of borrowings and expansion of business, digitization of transactions is gradually starting to take precedence.

Digitizing transaction has the potential to reduce cost components, increase efficiency and streamline operations, which would allow microfinance institutions to deliver greater value to their clients. Just a 15% increase in transaction digitization would positively affect the lives of close to 4.5 million women borrowers.
