The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) today signed two new credit guarantee facilities that will make up to $22 million available to finance factory upgrades and safety improvements in Bangladesh’s ready-made garment industry. This landmark partnership between USAID, Prime Bank Limited, and United Commercial Bank (UCB) will make affordable, long-term credit more available to small- and medium-sized suppliers in Bangladesh to make critical safety upgrades and structural improvements to better protect their workers and meet international standards.

The first agreement will guarantee up to $18 million in bank loans to ready-made garment factories that supply brands which are members of the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety (the Alliance). This guarantee partnership with Prime Bank and UCB was also made possible through a financial commitment by the Alliance of one million five-hundred thousand dollars ($1.5 million) to support the guarantee.

Ramadan is probably best known for the ritual of daily fasting. But Ramadan is also a time for reflection, devotion, generosity, discipline, and sacrifice. And for all of us, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the values of peace, of sharing, of family and community are universal values that we all share -- regardless of faith or nationality.
