Starting Business in Bangladesh: Documents you need to get SME loan from Banks/Financial Institutions

Getting SME loan or any kind of Bank loan is, in a word, complicated. In a sense it's okay to be complicated because giving money is not a good feeling for anyone but banks. Wherever you go to a bank for loan they just behave like they are not willing to give you loan but in hindsight they actually love to give loan but they love documents more. I doubt whether bankers love anything more than papers named by documents! In Bangladesh it's more than true that you need a bunch of documents to get loan.
