Jashim Uddin has been a beneficiary of USAID’s Rice Value Chains (RVC) project, which was led by IRRI Bangladesh, since 2015. He started full-time farming to support his family after completing his Master’s degree. This story shares his experience using mobile financial services, in particular a micro-credit product for farmers that he received through IFIC Bank.

This is the twelfth in a series created by mSTAR/Bangladesh to show the tangible benefits of digital financial services on people's lives.
