One of the crucial parts of this report is that, Prime Bank Consumer Credit scheme has been compared with other three similar second generation banks like Eastern Bank, Dhaka Bank and National Credit and Commerce Bank in some aspects to understand the current position in the market. From the comparison with three second generation banks, some problems and prospects are found in Prime Bank Retail Credit.

Again, Prime Bank has a few problem regarding target client segments and promotional activities that should be rectified. Overall, there are huge opportunities for Prime Bank to develop and enter in retail credit market. The popularity of Consumer Credit Scheme is increasing day by day. This product is popular because Bank can disburse this loan within a short time, with fewer amounts and the loan is also easily recoverable. Keeping the popularity to Consumer Credit Scheme in mind, most of banks are offering this product. So competition is increasing day by day in CCS program.
