Jagoron is the name of a credit instrument of PMK to initiate household based enterprise development in Bangladesh. PMK extended its financial services for the rural poor through this programme from October, 1990. Under this programme, borrowers are encouraged to undertake family-based income generating activities. PMK consistently addresses the rural poor. Since its inception, PMK has been insistently supporting its poor men and women in Rural and Urban areas participation in Jagoron is higher in comparison to its rural counterpart and since they have higher participation in the labour market, larger access to material resources, greater mobility and meaningful role in the household decision-making process. Urban borrowers are distinct from the rural borrowers in a number of ways. They are the landless squatters and they usually take loan for small trading. Vulnerable to threats of eviction, they live in slums or makeshift shacks. The number of urban poor is continuously increasing as a result of forced migration, limited employment opportunities in the rural agriculture sector and recurrent occurrence of several natural disasters.
