Fahima Begum, from Kharakanda village of Pathorghata upazila of Barguna district, passed her life with her family in happiness. Cyclone Roanu destroyed her house and agriculture. After losing all her earning tools she became hopeless and had a major financial crisis. She passed her daily life very hardly depending on her husband’s one source of income. It was very tough to continue her daily expanses along with her children. Marufa came to know about the Fael Khair Agro Input Program which is implemented by Islami Bank Foundation and financed by Islamic Development Bank Pathorghata unit of Barguna district. She did not hesitate to admit herself to be member of center 37. Her member number is 5859.
Marufa received with an amount of BDT 10, 000 for the first time for business. She bought a tailoring machine and few cloths. She made different types of dresses and earning money by selling them to the dwellers. Her income is helping her husband. Other cyclone Roanu victims are also getting help from Islami Bank Foundation and become solvent.
Marufa Begum told that, “Many people like me benefited by taking loan from Islami Bank Foundation after cyclone Roanu”.
