Focus Areas

Bangladesh’s fertile geography makes it ideal for agriculture and agro-based businesses. 20-30% percent of the GDP comes from the agriculture sector, 47% of the total workforce is employed in this sector, and 80% of the businesses in the ag-sector are MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises). At LC Impact, our focus is on regions where Ag-SMEs that receive little market-relevant business development support, practical opportunities to accelerate growth, and opportunities to link with growth-orientated funding opportunities. This includes regions in Northern Bangladesh – predominantly Rangpur and Rajshahi divisions, as well as Khulna, Sylhet, Barisal and Dhaka Divisions.
