CHAPTER ONE

Introduction Part
1.1 Introduction

“The devil promiseth you destitution and enjoineth on you lewdness. But Allah promiseth
you forgiveness from Himself with bounty. Allah is All Embracing, All Knowing”
(Al-Quran, Verse No.2: 268)
Poverty is the central problem to sustainable human development. With the increasing diversity in
human poverty, an increasing percentage of world population is going under poverty line every
year. While it was difficult for conventional financial institutions to extend financial help to
continue the growth potentials of every human being, Microcredit (microcredit and microfinance
are hereafter used interchangeably) came with revolutionary approach by providing the poor the
accessibility to the credit to increase their productivity, for reducing vulnerability, and to alleviate
poverty through self-employed economic activities. Microcredit deals with the poor those were
ignored by formal financial institutions because of not having assets for collateral, enough
financial records, and credit history (Chowdhury, 2001; Hossain, 1988; Littlefield, Morduch, &
Hashemi, 2003; Mahjabeen, 2007; Jonathan Morduch, 2000; Wilkins & Jennifer, 2007).

Bangladesh is a developing country. About 40 percent of the populations of the country live below
the poverty line (BBS, 2006). Annual per capita income of Bangladesh is about US$520 (MoF,
2007). Agriculture is still the main source of income for majority of people. Quite a few people
also engage themselves in some government or non-government jobs. In spite of the development
of new potential sectors as mentioned above Bangladesh has been continuously facing the problem
of poverty. Poverty reduction in a country like Bangladesh is very difficult as well and as
challenging task. During pre and post independent Bangladesh, governments have all the time
accorded top priority to poverty alleviation especially during latter part of 70s through micro credit
programmes initiated by Nobel Laureate Professor Dr. Muhammad Yunus.

1|Page
Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited (IBBL) envisages an economic system based on equity and
justice. Taking into consideration that the majority of the population below poverty line lives in
rural Bangladesh, the Bank has devised a “Rural Development Scheme” (RDS) with a view to
creating employment opportunity for them and thus reducing their poverty through income
generation activities. RDS works for the realization of that objective to create income generating
and productive self-employment opportunities through extension of investment for the
development of rural area and thereby contribute in alleviation of rural poverty. Investment will be
allowed for the purpose of production of crops, off-farm income activities like service, trading,
processing and manufacturing, shop keeping, peddling and rural transport like rickshaw,
Rickshaw-van, cart etc., irrigation equipment, hand tube well, housing materials, in all covering
about 343 types of economic activities.

Investment financing under RDS program of IBBL is generally collateral-free. Of course, fish
culture in ponds and the purchase of agricultural and irrigation implements require large amount as
such collateral in the form of an equitable mortgage is essential. Moreover, each member of the
group is required to provide a personal guarantee for his group. Investment financing starts after a
three-month observation of the group members in terms of regularity in their attendance in weekly
group meetings, centre meetings, and the deposit of their personal saving. Two members from each
group selected by the group members are considered for investment financing. The rest of the
group members become eligible for financing after observing member loan receives have duly paid
their 2 or 3 installments. The loan is approved by the Investment Committee, headed by the
respective Branch Manager. The Investment Committee meets once in a month regularly to
perform its duties.

Micro-credit programme in Bangladesh provides small loans to rural people and it is a unique
innovation of credit delivery technique to enhance income generating activities. The RDS of IBBL
is one among these private sector initiatives. The success of micro credit has captured the interest
of many researchers in broad areas such as women’s empowerment (Hashemi and Schuler, 1996;
Gatz, 1995), sustainability and outreach, (Khandker, 1998; Zeller and Sharma, 1997), group based

2|Page
lending, (Stiglits, 1990; Varian, 1990). The Present study therefore, has been undertaken to
examine the impact of the RDS micro finance investment on poverty alleviation. Thus it would be
an important research issue to explore the RDS of IBBL to see how do it effects on alleviation of
poverty in rural area.

Rural Development Scheme of IBBL.

13 | P a g e
RDS & Its Activities
3.1 Rural Development Scheme (RDS)
In order to improve the socioeconomic situation of the rural poor a Shariah based Microfinance
initiative or program named Rural Development Scheme (RDS) was launched by Islami Bank
Bangladesh Limited in 1995. Now, almost 1 million members are in the coverage of this plan and
83 percent of them are female members. An evaluation of the accomplishment of the RDS and its
effect on the lives of rural poor was needed before expansion into new regions can be possible. A
total of 1020 randomly selected clients of RDS were chosen and primary data were gathered from
them for conducting the study. The study suggested that it was a success by analyzing pros and
cons of the RDS program. There was seen an increasing trend of income and expenditure of the
clients which suggests that their standards of living improved and they were filled with satisfaction
towards this RDS program. It is realized from the study that the coverage of the RDS projects
should be expanded and more hard core poor especially widowed and divorcee should be brought
under this program for their better lives. At the same time Shariah compliance should be ensured
by strengthening the monitoring and supervision activities. Also more ethical and motivational
programs have to be organized for the clients and field supervisor so that they stay aware of the
facts about these programs and no shariah violation occurs. this is such a program which can be
extended to various rural areas of the country which will effectively manage and eradicate a large
portion of the poverty from our country gradually.

3.2 Years of Excellent Performance of RDS, IBBL

Building a society based on equity and justice according to the dignified principles of Islamic
Shariah is one of the core objectives of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited (IBBL). Keeping in line

14 | P a g e
with this objective IBBL introduced Rural Development Scheme program from 1995 in order to
fulfill the need of investment requirement of the rural aspects like agriculture, livestock projects,
various small businesses etc and hence create the scope and opportunity for employment and
raising and increasing the income of rural deprived people. The aim of the scheme is to achieve an
overall development of rural areas and ultimately building a model village of prosperity. Over the
course of time till now the scheme has been prevalent in about 19,418 villages of the country under
372 thanas of 61 districts and this is possible by providing RDS services through 228 branches of
the bank. The investment facilities in RDS are of basically two types- (a) Micro Investment
(collateral free investment for RDS member-maximum of 75,000 BDT) and (b) Micro-enterprise
investment (investment with collateral for graduated micro clients and newly inducted local micro
entrepreneurs-maximum of 500,000 BDT). And the investment sector includes agriculture and 343
off farm economic activities. In 2016 the RDS investment has reached to about 4.92 percent of
total investment of IBBL. By the end of 2016, the operation of RDS was dispersed to 19,418
villages with 999,140 clients through 28,960 centers. The rate of recovery is also significant (about
99 percent). Beside the investment IBBL also provided around 6,299 tube-wells amounting 50.99
million BDT and 3,068 sanitary latrines amounting 16.25 million BDT to the successful and
eligible RDS clients in 2017 as Quard-e-Hasana (profit free investment). The RDS program
includes some non-financial (welfare) programs also which make the scheme an effective poverty
reduction package.

3.3 The Main Objectives of the Scheme Are


• Providing investment facilities to development and effective operation of agricultural, other
farming and off-farming activities in the rural areas.
• To create opportunities of self employment and finance income generating sectors and activities

and divorced women.
• To alleviate and gradually eradicate rural plight and poverty through integrated rural
development packages.

15 | P a g e

3.4. Integrated Development approach

The purpose of the Scheme includes not only arranging Micro Investment opportunities to the

CHAPTER FOUR
Difference between Conventional and Islamic Commercial Banks

21 | P a g e
Although Islamic commercial banks have many products similar to those offered by
conventional banks, the two entities differ conceptually. One key difference is that conventional
banks earn their money by charging interest and fees for services, whereas Islamic banks earn
their money by profit and loss sharing, trading, leasing, charging fees for services rendered, and
using other shariah contracts of exchange.

Following are four key ways that conventional and Islamic commercial banks differ.

4.1The oversight of a Shariah Board

A shariah board consists of Islamic scholars who are qualified to give opinions on Islamic
business contracts. In a commercial bank, the board is also involved in supervising bank
operations to make sure they comply with shariah principles.

You may wonder why a bank needs a shariah board to ensure its compliance with shariah
principles. If the basic distinction between conventional and Islamic banking hinges on interest,
can’t Islamic banks satisfy the requirement by just making sure none of their transactions
involves charging interest?

Islamic banks and other financial institutions must comply with a variety of principles besides
avoiding interest. Islamic finance is based on four core principles:
 Prohibiting usury
 Avoiding speculation
 Avoiding gambling
 Investing ethically

22 | P a g e
Interpreting each principle is more difficult than you may think. Scholars spend their lifetimes
learning all they can about the intent and past interpretation of sharia law, and they still often
have differing opinions about it.

Making sure that Islamic banks comply with shariah isn’t easy — hence the necessity of the
shariah supervisory board. This board is the backbone of an Islamic bank; it plays a vital role in
establishing and operating the bank.

4.2 Concepts of money and the basis of transactions

To say that Islamic banks are different from conventional banks because the former don’t charge
interest is accurate, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg. That difference is just one of many ways
that the fundamentals of Islamic banking differ from those of conventional commercial banking.

The basic purpose for establishing an Islamic bank is to promote and encourage Islamic
principles. Conventional banks are profit-making organizations that generally aren’t based on
religious principles. That said, earning money is also a primary function of an Islamic
commercial bank. Although the bank has a specific religious purpose, it can’t serve that purpose
unless it also meets the objective of earning money.

A bank serves no purpose at all if it can’t stay in business!

Islamic banks operate based on Islamic business law (called fiqh-u-muamalat) for their basic
transactions, and they also follow the financial laws and regulations of the countries in which
they operate. Conventional banks likewise operate based on a country’s financial laws and
regulations, but they don’t have contact with any religious body.

Islamic scholars recognize that money has value, but with limitations. For example, money can’t
become more valuable simply because time is passing. However, the value of money can
increase if it’s invested in a project that itself is increasing (in size, in success, and so on).

4.3 Relationships with clients or customers

23 | P a g e
When you deposit your paycheck in a conventional bank, your relationship with that bank is one
of creditor to debtor; the bank has a responsibility to pay back your money with or without
interest according to your account contract. Similarly, the roles reverse when the bank provides
you with a loan. The relationship between a customer and an Islamic bank is completely
different; the debtor and creditor relationship does exist at times in Islamic banking. To
understand the relationship between the customer and Islamic bank, you must know what
contract that relationship is based on.

4.4 Investments in the bank

Investments in conventional commercial banks are based on guaranteed principal and earning a
fixed amount of income. For example, say that a customer in a conventional bank deposits
$10,000 in a six-month term deposit. After six months, the bank has a liability to pay back the
customer the principal plus the interest rate charged for six months. Even if the bank lost the
money in an investment, the bank is still liable to pay back all the money due.

In Islamic banking, the concept of investment is different. Although the customer deposits the
money in order to earn extra income for her savings, her principal and returns aren’t guaranteed.
Suppose the Islamic bank loses money because of an unexpected business failure. In this case,
the bank isn’t liable to pay the money to its customer.

(Note: The failure of an investment isn’t very common in Islamic banks because the banks are
very concerned about their customers and make their investment choices very wisely. If they
didn’t, they soon would have no customers at all!)

Performance of Rural Development Scheme

28 | P a g e
5.1 Performance Evaluation
RDS is considered as a new paradigm in poverty alleviation and bring about development (H.
Ahmed, 2003). RDS has large positive impact, which is observed in the case of food intake,
housing, education, clothing, taking medical treatment, use of toilet, use of clear pure water,
income, expenditure and as such economic, socio-economic, health and physiochemical
environment. Parveen (2009)argues that RDS of IBBL has been treated as a sustainable MFI in the
rural development and poverty alleviation of Bangladesh with a short span of time of its
establishment. Under the RDS program, IBBL distributes tube-well for safe water and also builds
sanitary latrine in the remote areas. Some of the members are also given waivers from their
payment of the principal for extreme poverty cases. These issues can be categorized as social
contribution of RDS. Likewise, RDS has started giving investment to micro-enterprises. These
investments are especially important for rural economy and, therefore, are considered as input to
economical development by RDS.

Analysis of growth performance in coverage of RDS, RDS is expected to be introduced in the rural
areas of the country step by step. It has covered 19,418 villages till 2016 with a growth of 16%
over the last 8 years from 2009 to 2016. The performance of RDS with respect to coverage is most
volatile which is reflected through minimum number 75 and maximum number 3497 villages
during study period.

5.2 An overview of the RDS-Model


Evolution of Interest-free MFIs in Bangladesh is a response to the urge of safeguarding the Islamic
way of life in the face of a massive penetration of interest in rural areas through the conventional
MFI / NGO approach. One of the glaring features of these initiatives is exclusively indigenous in
terms of organization and source of funds which are considered to be building blocks for any effort
towards sustainability. Islamic MFIs have come forward very recently as a way of escape from the
interest based micro credit program of traditional MFIs and to carry on financial operations with
no dependence on subsidies from outside sources. The concept has strong relevance to the Islamic
worldview of life. According to this sprit, Islamic MFIs have been implemented integrated rural
development and poverty alleviation programs since 1995 (www. concept and ideology rural
financing.htm).
30 | P a g e
The model functions in accordance with Islamic economic principles, and mobilize their resources
for entitlement formation by the poor on the basis of Shariah techniques. The target beneficiaries
of the programs are mainly; landless poor, wage laborers and marginal farmers aimed at meeting
their basic needs and promoting their comprehensive development. RDS has enabled the poorest of
the poor to get interest free loan in kind without collateral and saved them from exploitation by
both the formal and informal moneylenders who charge interest at a high rate. The institutional
mechanism of credit delivery system of RDS is more or less same like Grameen Bank Model and
other traditional MFIs. But in case of loan recovery, if a client/ borrower pays full burrowed
money in time then he/she is rewarded with rebate3. This system is not followed by traditional
MFIs including GB. The growth of membership, amount of loan disbursed/investment assistance,
members’ savings, recovery etc.

CHAPTER SIX
Findings, Recommendations & Conclusion.

6.1 Findings

 In Bangladesh there are several micro credits financing organization but unlike RDS in terms
of selection criteria of target group, method of profit sharing, value generation, low charges,
size of loan and other attributes.
 The selection criteria scrutinize a person’s desire to change his/her socio-economic
conditions by getting investment from RDS.
 The profit sharing method of RDS is unique by itself. The members of RDS has to pay 10 %
profit but if they can pay all their installments in due time, then they can avail 2.5% profit
rebate.

37 | P a g e
 Currently RDS is operating in 19,418 villages out of 87,000 villages. This is a total 22.3%
village of Bangladesh. The numbers are increasing each year. In the year 2015 it was only
14.7% villages. This shows that the operations are increasing rapidly.
 The key differentiation of RDS with the other micro credit organization is that, it is totally
operated and compiled under the rules of Islamic Sharia. To keep this investment interest free
RDS use various modes and mechanisms of sharia. They deal with assets instead of credit.
 The rate of investment recovery of RDS is an incredible 99.54%, which shows that the
members are using the investment in the desired purpose and generating income. This also
shows that RDS has built a member friendly follow up and recovery mechanism, which is
effectively implemented by its officers and members.
 The members of RDS have to open and maintain Mudaraba Saving Account in their own
individual name and also the center’s name. Every week they have deposit minimum 20tk in
their individual account and minimum 5tk in centers account. It is mandatory for them to
deposit the amount but the amount is refundable in case of emergency. The deposits of the
members are increasing with a steady number, which shows that the number of members is
increasing with the investment and income of their own.
 One unique feature of RDS is that it doesn’t only make people solvent but also enrich them
with the knowledge and wisdom of the religion. Each week in a center people hear and learn
teachings of Islam and they are encouraged to practice Islam. RDS also looks after the other
religion members with their religion teachings. So that, no one feel that they are being treated
differently. Even the non-Muslims are very satisfied with the service of RDS in comparison
with other micro credit organizations.
 Among all the investment projects of RDS crops and other cultivation, livestock and off firm
activities have the majority percentage. Despite of our rural economy is based on farming,
cultivation but the agro-machineries, poultry, nursery and fishers projects are not increasing
in numbers.
 RDS is not only a micro credit system, but also it is a comprehensive system for rural people
to develop their standard of living by financially becoming solvent and by being guided by
their religion.

38 | P a g e
6.2 Recommendations
Though Islamic bank is comparatively superior to conventional interest based bank from various
aspects like abolition of interest based loan market, no fixed cost of capital, stimulation for
accelerating saving and capital formation, efficient allocation of investment, production and profit,
easy recovery of investment capital, lower inflationary situation, etc. Islami bank has to fight for
several obstacles in case of harmonious operation. Here I have tried to locate some vivid hindrance
and suggested accordingly.
• Any kind of bank Shariah based or interest based has to operate under regulatory environment
prepared and approved by the government. There are conflicts between Islami Shariah and general
Government rules and banking law. That’s why Islami bank does not get the opportunity and help
from the running law of government.
39 | P a g e
• Lending procedure of IBBL need to take less time for their customer’s investment section. The
bank should try to sanction investment within one month or less.
• The bank should analyze customer’s financial statement and their management Capacity.
• The techniques of supervision & monitoring need to be ensured before clients failing to repay
the investment.
• The authority of RDS should increase the size of investment in order to cope with the change in
value of currency because of inflation and other economic reasons
• RDS should project their volume of activities for future; then all parties involving in managing
RDS should be assigned and held responsible for the job assigned at the beginning of the year.
That is, the performance of RDS should be subject to Balanced Score Card System.
• RDS with its differentiated features can lock more market share in the country if it comes out
with more generous policy like selection of people not on religions basis.
• Agricultural investment should be increased in this bank.
• The bank should be flexible about collateral for giving advance to the client’s
• The authority of RDS should increase the size of investment in order to cope with the change in
value of currency because of inflation and other economic reasons.
• RDS should project their volume of activities for future; then all parties involving in managing
RDS should be assigned and held responsible for the job assigned at the beginning of the year.
That is, the performance of RDS should be subject to Balanced Score Card System.
• The repayment should be balloon basis. That is, repayment system should start at least after one
month of taking loan, and should be based on the nature of cash flow being generated from farm
and non-farm activities like seasonal cash flow and regular cash flow
• The study recommends that RDS activities be extended towards hardcore poor, especially for
widows and divorcees. Monitoring and supervision should be strengthened, while more ethical and
moral motivational programs have to be undertaken for both field supervisors and clients to reduce
shariah violation. The program can be replicated in other rural areas of Bangladesh in order to
accelerate economic activities of the poor.
• The members of the RDS have given many interesting and important suggestions for the
increasing the number of clients. Perhaps very consistently, the members have suggested that the
IB should increase the volume of credit. Through experience they were of the opinion that peoples'

40 | P a g e
demand for money was very high. The lending institutions gave fell short of their demands. Even
the amount of loan/investment given by the IB fell short of their demands. Even the amount of
loan/investment given by the IB fell short of the amounts given by the other institutions,
particularly, GB, ASA and BRAC. Given the opportunities for proper utilisation, the bank should
also provide more than one type of loans (general loans, housing loans etc.

6.3 Conclusion

Rural development scheme assumes very important position in the social portfolio of IBBL. It is
not an exception in case of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited. Rural Development Scheme is a
scientific and shariah based micro credit system. The basic objective of the program is to graduate
the poor class of the society from the poverty clutch through getting them involved into the
different income generating activities by providing loans and teachings of Islam. This program is
in line with social and cultural values of Muslimummah of the country. This program is expected
to give a breakthrough in the intervention of poverty trap of the country if suggestions put
forwarded are implemented. RDS in Bangladesh as well to achieve its mission to spread the

41 | P a g e
Islamic Banking throughout the world economy system. I also think that there is bright future
waiting for the Islami banking in Bangladesh.
