IPDC Finance Ltd brings back the interest-free book facilities titled Subodh.
In 2020, it was held at Amar Ekushey Book Fair.
IPDC collaborated with rokomari.com to help customers access the bookstore without physically having to go to the book fair. There is a menu option named ‘IPDC Shubodh’ in the homepage of rokomari.com website. From there a visitor can apply for loan and purchase books with Shubodh loan upon confirmation from IPDC.
This initiative aims to mitigate the hindrance that booklovers might face financially and encourage the habit of reading books with its tagline ‘Notun Boi-er Ghran-e, Subodh Jaguk Pran-e.’
One can avail a loan of up to Tk 3,000 and pay back via three installments.
The applicants must be at least 18 years old Bangladeshi citizen. All they need to submit are images of National ID Card, student ID or professional ID and a photo of the applicant. The facility can be enjoyed until the April 14, said a release.
Mominul Islam, managing director and CEO of IPDC, said, ‘To boost the exuberance of bookworms, IPDC has brought this offer to inspire the youth to read more books. The habit of reading among the new generation is a must to build an intellectually capable leadership for future Bangladesh. We hope Subodh will give a chance to everyone to read books of their interest and sharpen their power of imagination.’
Mahmudul Hasan Sohag, the chairman of Onnorokom Group, a business that owns rokomari.com, said, ‘Book is the most effective medium to enlighten the mind. IPDC Shubodh will play a huge role to encourage the habit of reading. We believe, with such effort, someday all the people in Bangladesh from any part of the country will have books at their hand.’
