Abstract
  • Bangladesh occupies a unique position due to her natural fisheries resources in South Asia. Fisheries can play a positive role in the supply of delicious and high quality protein food for the people of the country. Credit is a powerful doorway to reduce poverty. It helps the poor to fight against poverty with their own efforts. Particularly, empowerment of women can help to alleviate poverty and mobilize natural resources. Women play an important role in the processing and trading of fish. However, they are limited in their marketing opportunities and access to credit. Moreover, arrangement of adequate finance at market rate may contribute significant role in the socio-economic development of coastal women fisher folk in study areas. Again financial support system needs to be dynamic so that concerned women fisher folk can get the benefits of institutional credit facilities. So far our knowledge goes no in-depth study has yet been done on this subject of research. This research gap motivated the authors to under take this study. The paper focuses the main aspect of credit services and women empowerment with reference to the coastal women fisher folk of the fishing communities of Bangladesh. The data and information have been collected from 150 women fisher folk of five villages covering five districts of Bangladesh. The paper examines the credit services and role of women fisher folk in the coastal fishing community.
