ABASON Program


ABASON Program

PKSF has undertaken different initiatives to create employment opportunities and ensure holistic development of the poor in the country. In line with this, PKSF since January 2019 has been implementing a loan program for housing development titled ‘ABASON’ (literally meaning ‘housing’) out of its own fund to improve the living conditions of the target disadvantaged people, by extending financial and technical support to them.

The ABASON program is being implemented in 33 upazilas of 16 districts through 76 branches of 16 Partner Organizations (POs) of PKSF. As of August 2021, a total of BDT 42 crore has been disbursed among the POs that in turn have disbursed BDT 56.22 crore among 2,475 households in the field level for housing improvement (new construction, repair and extension).
