SEDB is focussing its efforts on deprived villages to promote increasing use of the banking system for maintain savings and to take advantage of the banks' generous loan terms to improve their lives.

SEDB is providing loan facilities on rotation basis to villagers who are engaged in trade, agriculture, animal husbandry, fisheries industry, small-scale industries and housing, education, health and medical services.
