BANKS and Cooperatives can help people in obtaining cheap and affordable loans. This will help people to grow crops, do business set up small scale industries or trade goods and also help indirectly in the country’s development.
- They should do so, so that relatively poor people do not have to depend on informed sources of credit.
- Formal sector loans need to expand. It is also necessary that-everyone receives these loans.
