Therefore, providing a secure environment to continue production and taking care of our
farmers is our
foremost responsibility. With this in mind, CDB initiated these facilities which will
empower all farmers’ aspirations and create a better livelihood for them”.
CDB has special payment plans for those in the agricultural sector, where seasonal
payment methods are tailor-made as per the different harvesting periods and yields in
the area. These facilities are provided with low-interest rates for farmers coupled with a
