Bhutan Times - - Front Page -

The Bhutan De­vel­op­ment Bank (BDB), for­merly known as Bhutan De­vel­op­ment Fi­nance Cor­po­ra­tion (BDFC) was es­tab­lished by the Royal Gov­ern­ment of Bhutan to pro­vide fi­nan­cial ser­vices for de­vel­op­ment of agri­cul­ture and in­dus­trial en­ter­prise of Bhutan. Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay in com­mem­o­ra­tion of 60th birth an­niver­sary of our Fourth Druk Gyalpo launch the first “Geog Based Bank­ing Ser­vices” and “Drinchen Ama Sav­ing Scheme” on 11th De­cem­ber 2014 in Kabisa, Punakha. Ly­onch­hen and Fi­nance Min­is­ter handed over piggy banks to 20 women from dif­fer­ent vil­lages in Kabisa as part of the “Drinchen Ama Sav­ing Scheme.” With Geog Based Bank­ing Ser­vice, the peo­ple liv­ing in the ru­ral ar­eas can now have their own bank ac­count, which means they will be able to de­posit cash, make loan re­pay­ment, with­drawals, and fund trans­fers, in­quire about their bal­ance and re­mit­tance. The bank will set up Geog Based Bank­ing Ser­vice in all 205 Dzongkhags.
