​The attitude of proper utilization of bank loans for productive works and again the habit of loan repayment should be developed among selves, he added.

Beneficiaries should not confine only to the trades where many people have been working already but they should develop innovative ideas using expertise in them. Such innovations will definitely help to extend business volume and more profit will be made.
