PKSF to set up outlet in city

The Palli Karmo Sahayak Foundation (PKSF) will set up a centre in the city so that rural small entrepreneurs can exhibit their products and sell them.

“We have already bought a piece of land in the city’s Shyamoli area. The construction will start soon,” Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, the chairman of the PKSF said on Sunday.

He said associate members of the PKSF could exhibit and sell their products at the centre for which they do not have to pay the rent.

There is a disparity between the prices for rural entrepreneurs and urban traders.

Rural entrepreneurs often allege middlemen eat up most of the profits; they have to sell their products at low prices to the middlemen, contributing to the low growth of rural small industries.

Kholiquzzaman said this while speaking at a seminar at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre, marking the 23rd anniversary of the PKSF.

Three rural innovators, who invented agricultural machinery and other essential tools by using local raw materials, were felicitated at the seminar.

Minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Yafes Osman, who was the chief guest at the seminar said traditionally people of the country are innovative.

The minister lauded the PKSF for its role in the development of the agriculture sector and said his ministry would help the PKSF in its innovative approach.

The three innovators – Amir Hossain, Bablu and Hasina Akhter – requested the government to help them market their products.

Among others, former managing director of the PKSF Kazi Mesbah Uddin Ahmed, Managing Director, Abdul Karim and Ayub Hossain from Jonobiggan Foundation spoke at the seminar.

A development fair began on Sunday at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre. 

A total of 76 rural entrepreneurs from across the country are taking part in the fair. They are selling their products at a discount. The fair will continue till May 16.
