The SME market in Bangladesh is large. The report produced by the Shore Bank team, (Ronald Grzywinsky, Mary Houghton and Lynn Pikholz) and the independent consultant, Kaiser Zaman, indicates that the market size would be over hundreds of billions of taka. He quoted: “As a result of the achievements of the micro-credit providers, Bangladesh now has an hour glass shaped banking market in which credit and other limited financial services are valuable to both very large and very small businesses and very wealthy and very poor individuals. While there is well – known informal system that provides credit to businesses, virtually nothing is available from either banks or micro finance provider to the million the middle – businesses and individual- who are severely constrained in their ability to produce and save for lack of access to financial resources and services. Until modern, competitive financial services are readily available – including credit in amounts, terms and conditions that small can access, Bangladesh will not be able to create the large middle class that is a prerequisite to social stability. 2.8 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of BRAC Bank:


Since the inception as a responsible corporate body BRAC Bank Ltd. has undertaken various initiatives considering the interest of customers, employees, shareholders, communities and environment.

c. Marketing Aspects: A CRO should consider the following factors of a business before making any loan commitment with a customer: Total demand and supply of the products in the market that the business operates in growth of sales and major marketing threats that the business may face. d. Financial Aspects: This aspect allows us to check the financial health of a business, through an analysis of the profit and loss account, balance sheet, cash flows, ratios and requirement of working capital. If the collection of the financial data can be done properly, then it may be able to make a somewhat realistic picture of the business financial position. However, all the data collected must be crosschecked as much as possible with the physical features of business. The following things are to be considered and restudied at the time of verifying the financial feasibility of the business:  Current year’s profit/Loss of the business and probable profitability of business after taking the loan  Restructure of assets, liabilities and net worth of the manufacturing/ trading / service institution before and after taking loan  Present net cash flow of the business after disbursement of loan should be restudied,  To know the cash position of the institution  To know the source of income, production and other expenditure of the business probable financial risks of the business e. Socio Economic Aspects: Here the analyst like to observe the contribution of the business to the country’s GDP, the employment generated, the sort of adverse impact of the business on the environment, it is another benefit to the country. f. Security Aspects: Along with observation of different aspects and views of the projects, the CRO should also see closely the aspects of the projects and ensure about the reliability to the mortgaged property/assets. Ensure proper survey or verification of the security offered Ensure attachment of survey report. 3.8 Reasons of SME program from the viewpoint of BRAC Bank:


The main focus of BRAC Bank is to develop human and economic position of a country. Its function is not limited only to providing and recovering of loan. But also try to develop economy of a country. So reason for this program from the viewpoint of BRAC Bank is: a. Support Small Enterprise: The small enterprise, which requires 2 to 30, lacks taka loan, but these has no easy access to the banks/financial institutions. For example: In 3 to 8 lac amount of loans is provided without any kind of mortgage. b. Economic Development: Economic development of a country largely depends on the small and medium seal enterprises. Such as, if we analyze the development history of Japan, the development of small & medium scale enterprises expedite the development of that country. c. Employment Generation: The bank gearing employment opportunities by two ways: Firstly, by providing loan to the small enterprises expanding, these businesses require more workers. Secondly, Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) program requires educated and energetic people to provide savories to entrepreneurs. d. Profit Marking: SME program is a new dimensional banking system in the banking world. Most of the CRO’s are providing door to door services to the entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs are satisfied by the service of this bank and the bank also makes more profit. e. Encourage Manufacturing: A focus of BRAC Bank is to encourage manufacturing by the entrepreneurs who are producing by purchasing various types of materials. CRO’s try to educate them to produce material if possible because if they can produce in line of purchase profits will be high. f. Spread the experience: Another reason of BRAC Bank is to spread the knowledge of regarding various businesses. The customer services officer get knowledge from various businesses is and tries to help the entrepreneurs who have shortage of the gathered knowledge by CRO’s. The CRO’s who are the driving force of SME division of BRAC Bank also gather knowledge about various businesses and make stronger knowledge base 3.9 Security Documentation against Loan: A document is a written statement of facts and a proof or evidence of particular transaction between parties involved. a. Purpose of Decorate Documentation and its Importance Documentation is necessary for the acknowledgement of a debt and conditions by the borrower and the creation of charge on the securities in favor of the bank by the borrower. If filing a suit with the courts against a default borrower becomes necessary, the court will first review all documents. If any of the documents is found to be defect or incomplete, the very purpose of security documentation will be defeated and a court ruling in favor the bank


cannot expect. Proper care should, therefore, be taken while completing security documentation. b. Type of Securities The following listed securities may be obtained from borrower against loan to enterprises, either individually or in a combination. It is really up to the bank what they would like to accept as security from the borrower as not all the securities stated below are suitable: • • • • • • • • • •

It should have access to all the utilities, skilled manpower’s that are required. 7. Any risk assessed by the management in turn will become a credit risk for the bank. So effort should make to understand the risk faced by the business. Guarantor Selection Criteria 1.

Then they communicate with entrepreneurs and discuss the SME program. • Loan Presentation: The function of CRO is to prepare loan presentation based on the information collected and provided by the entrepreneur about their business, land property ( Where mortgage is necessary) • Collect confidential information: Another important function of a CRO is to collect confidential information about the client from various sources. The sources of information are suppliers regarding the clients payment, customers regarding the delivery of goods of services according to order, various banks where the client has account which shows the banks transactions nature of the client. • Open clients accounts in the respective bank: When the CRO decided to provide loan to the client then he/she help the client to open an bank account where BRAC bank has a STD a/c. BRAC bank will disburse the loan through this account. On the other hand the client will repay by this account. Although there is some exception occur by the special permission of the authority to repay by a different bank account. • Filled up CIB form: CRO give a CIB (Credit Information Burue) form to the client and the client fill and sign in it. In some case if the client is illiterate then the CRO fill


the form on behalf of the client. Then CRO send the filled and signed form to the SME, head office. • •

Sending CIB to Bangladesh Bank: The SME, head office collect all information and send the CIB form to Bangladesh Bank for clearance. Bangladesh Bank return this CIB form within 10-12 days with reference no. CIB report from Bangladesh Bank: In the CIB report Bangladesh Bank use any of the following reference no:  NIL: if the client has no loan facility in any bank or any financial institution then BB (Bangladesh Bank) use ‘NIL’ in the report  UC (Unclassified): if the client has any loan facility in any bank or financial institution and if the installment due 0 to 5.99 then BB use UC in the report  SS (Substandard): if the client has any loan facility in any bank or financial institution and if the installment due 6 to 11.99 then BB use SS in the report  DF(Doubtful): if the client has any loan facility in any bank or financial institution and if the installment due 12 to 17.99 then BB use DF in the report  BL (Bad lose): if the client has any loan facility in any bank or financial institution and if the installment due 18 or above then BB use BL in the report. This report indicates that the client is defaulter and the bank should not provide loan the client. Loan decision considering CIB report: Considering CIB report, BRAC bank decide whether it will provide loan the client or not. If the bank decides to provide loan then the SME of head office keep all information and send all papers to the respective unit office to apply with all necessary charge documents.

3.12 SME Loan Recovery Procedures: The repayment process starts immediately after one month of the loan taken. Suppose if a loan is taken in July 7, 2010 then the repayment process will be started from August 7, 2010 and the borrower will pay his/her first installment in that date. Before that date, the borrowers will be informed about the number of installments and amount of each installment. He can deposit the installment by himself or by the Customer relationship officer (CRO). Again they can deposit the installments either in any branch of BRAC Bank or in any correspondence bank (where BRAC Bank has no branch). If the borrower cannot pay the installment in the stipulated date, interest will be charged for each day before they pay that installment. Again interest will be reduced if the borrower pays the installment before the date of repayment. Interest will be charged and added to the principal amount for every month or every 3 three months depending on the policy for each loan disbursement. Receive SMS/Fax for installment deposits When the borrower repays any installment of the loan then he/she informs it to the unit office/CRO. Then the unit office/CRO sends an SMS through mobile phone or a Fax to the


loan administration division informing the repayment. A loan administration division collects these SMS /Fax and takes a paper print of these SMS. Entry the installment information to MBS Loan administration division entries the repayment installment information to the banking software MBS. Print Vouchers Completing the entry, the loan administration division takes paper print of all vouchers in a prescribed yellow paper. Check SMS/Fax and solve problems (If any) The loan administration is responsible for all entry in MBS. If there is any error found in future then the respective officer who is entering this information in MBS will be liable for it. User ID will easily identify it. So they are always aware of to ensure the correct entry. Completing the entry of information, they print a hard copy and check it with the SMS/Fax. If there is any error found then it is solved and ensures the correct information entry. Repayment voucher check and posting If it confirmed that all entering information is correct and there is no error, then the responsible officer of the loan administration division posts it to MBS. If one time posted, it is not rectifiable without permission of the higher authority. So the loan administration is always aware of regarding the recovery procedures of SME loan. 3.13.

3.14 Porter Five Forces analysis: Porter's 5 forces analysis is a framework for the industry analysis and business strategy development developed by Michael E. Porter. It uses concepts developed in Industrial Organization (IO) economics to derive 5 forces that determine the competitive intensity and therefore attractiveness of a market.. Michael Porter has identified five forces that are widely used to assess the structure of any industry. Porter’s five forces are: • •

Bargaining power of suppliers Bargaining power of buyers


• Threat of new entrants • Threat of substitutes and • Rivalry among competitors. Together, the strength of the five forces determines the profit potential in an industry by influencing the prices, costs, and required investments of businesses—the elements of return on investment. Stronger forces are associated with a more challenging business. Intensity of Rivalry amongst competitors Rivalry among competitors is often the strongest of the five competitive forces, but can vary widely among industries. If the competitive force is weak, companies may be able to raise prices, provide less service for the price, and earn more profits. If competition is intense, it may be necessary to enhance product offerings to keep customers, and prices may fall below break-even levels. In Bangladesh there are more than 30 commercial banks that compete in the same industry. The national banks have the highest banking network in Bangladesh. They compete with other banks with their low cost of operation and government support. Again, Standard Chartered bank is the largest multinational banking network in Bangladesh that has its network in many metropolitans of Bangladesh. There are other international banks such as HSBC that also take part in the competition and are aggressive in nature. Due to the increasing number of banks in Bangladesh it makes difficult for the existing banks such as BRAC Bank Limited to compete in the long run. In the Banking Sector, competition is about offering customers the most attractive combination of services introducing new products, offering more customer services, or creating a stronger brand image than competitors. Threat of new entrants: Analyzing the threat of new entrants involves examining the barriers to entry and the expected reactions of existing firms to a new competitor. Barriers to entry are the costs and/or legal requirements needed to enter a market. These barriers protect the companies already in business by being a hurdle to those trying to enter the market. In addition to up-front barriers, a new competitor may inspire established companies to react with tactics to deter entry, such as lowering prices or forming partnerships. The chance of reaction is high in markets where firms have a history of retaliation, excess cash, are committed to the industry. The threat of new entrants is moderate in the context of Bangladesh. Over the years it is seen that increasing number of local banks have emerged in the local market. Moreover it is seen that new international banks have also started their operations in Bangladesh and also slowly increasing their branches countrywide. In the context of BBL the various new & upcoming Banks pose a significant threat, being new entrants in the banking sector of Bangladesh. But BBL is aware of these potential


competitors and is trying to expand countrywide to make the sector unattractive & to create entry barrier. Threat of substitute products Products from one business can be replaced by products from another. If one produces a commodity product that is undifferentiated; customers can easily switch away from that product to a competitor’s product with few consequences. In contrast, there may be a distinct penalty for switching if the product is unique or essential for the customer’s business. Substitute products are those that can fulfill a similar need to the one a product fills. The threat that substitute products pose to an industry's profitability depends on the relative priceto-performance ratios of the different types of products or services to which customers can turn to satisfy the same basic need. The threat of substitution is also affected by switching costs – that is, the costs in areas such as retraining, retooling and redesigning that are incurred when a customer switches to a different type of product or service BBL continuously faces the threat of various substitute products launched by its strong competitors in the market place. For example, the launch of premiere banking by SCB poses a strong threat on BBL’s premium customer group and BBL is at a condition where it should launch an even better product. Various local and international banks these days are coming up with low cost new products which may pose a strong threat to BBL’s banking. Since the switching costs are not that high there is always a chance of customer changing their preferred banking services from a particular bank. Bargaining power of suppliers Any business requires inputs—labor, parts, raw materials, and services. The cost of inputs can have a significant effect on a company’s profitability. Whether the strength of suppliers represents a weak or a strong force hinges on the amount of bargaining power they can exert and, ultimately, on how they can influence the terms and conditions of transactions in their favor. Suppliers would prefer to sell to at the highest price possible or provide with no more services than necessary. If the force is weak, then one may be able to negotiate a favorable business deal for themselves. Conversely, if the force is strong, then one will be in a weak position and may have to pay a higher price or accept a lower level of quality or service. The depositors of BRAC Bank Limited are the main suppliers of the bank. Considering the economic condition of the country it can be said that the bargaining power of the suppliers are very high. The main reason behind this is that after the caretaker government took over the country huge amount of wealth of politicians have been confiscated which otherwise would have been deposited in different banks. As a result the banks in Bangladesh are in shortage of depositors. Due to the shortages of depositors, the depositors are being able to bargain a better negotiation. Moreover the BRAC Bank Limited is not being able to decrease their interest rate on deposits which makes the bargaining power of the suppliers very high. Bargaining power of buyers


The power of buyers describes the effect that customers have on the profitability of a business. The transaction between the seller and the buyer creates value for both parties. But if buyers (who may be distributors, consumers, or other manufacturers) have more economic power, then the firm’s ability to capture a high proportion of the value created will decrease, and the firm will earn lower profit. Considering the global financial downturn and also the current economic situation of the country it is seen that customers are reluctant to go for new investments and also due to the global financial turmoil it is seen that imports have been reduced to a greater extent. As a result fewer importers are opening LC’s through BRAC and other banks. Moreover fewer investors are taking loans from the banks. As the switching costs is not that high, customers often tend to go for those banks where they provide low cost and quality services These factors implies that the customers of BRAC Bank have a high bargaining power.

Chapter -4 FINDINGS • • • • • • • • • •

SME loan is popular in rural area. But problem is management cost is very high for that reason people are discouraged on SME loan. As a rural area base loan system, bank face huge problem to collect minimum documentation against on loan. Another problem are arise when CRO going to collect installment. It’s really tough to collect installment. Maximum loan borrowers are not qualified for loan. There are vast areas in agriculture to investment. But investment is very low. There is no specific research institution for SME loan. Loan processing time is 1 month or more. So it creates a problem. Customer feels CRM harassment. Customer want long term loan, now maximum time is 36 months. Another big problem is online problem, because of that most of the unit office are in rural area for that reason bank can’t contract with unit office by online.

Chapter -5 Conclusion & recommendations BRAC Bank Limited is proving itself as the fastest growing bank only in 9 years of its journey and showing remarkable progress of its financial position with the mission of being countries leading bank providing world-class services in a cost effective manner. This bank first introduces the SME loan in commercial banking sector, which help the people of poor society both in rural and urban. One thing can be noted that time horizon is too little to


predict or evaluate the performance but the analysis clearly represents the better performance of the BRAC Bank Limited since its inception in year 2001. Even though BRAC Bank’s different performance parameters are good, it should expand its operations to the rural mass people who basically are deprived from different quality services of BRAC Bank Limited. It is possible because it has a great linkage with the BRAC, a micro-finance institution, spread all over the country. •

First of all Bank should have to find those causes that increases cost. Then take right action to minimize the cost.

Identify the qualify person who is able to collect the loan.

Proper documentation collect is another main duty for bank. Because of that without documentation loan recovery are difficult.

CRM harassment should be minimized.

CRO needs to increase personal relationship with potential customer.

Bank should be launch motivational activities. Like Successful Entrepreneur of the year award.

Bank should increase their nursery process after sanctioning their loan.

• •

Time management should be minimized. They have to use such kind of server by that every unit office can contract head office.
