Introduction

The SMEs worldwide are Arecognized as engines of economic growth. The important role of SMEs in the national economy of Bangladesh for creating over 90 per cent of industrial enterprises, generating employment to 4 out of 5 industrial workers and contributing to over one-third of industrial value-added to gross domestic product (GDP) emphasizes its promotion by providing access to finance. The relative SMEs share in manufacturing value-added is much higher and estimated to vary between 45 to 50 per cent of totaling value-added generated by the manufacturing industries sector. With these perceived merits of SMEs, Bangladesh Bank has emphasized for their promotion especially in the area of access to finance and has given several directions to the scheduled Banks.
