She received her first loan with an amount of BDT 15000 on 5th February 2013. After successful return, she took again BDT 20000 for second time for agriculture on 10th December 2013. She also took another term with an amount of BDT 28000 for agriculture on 25th October 2014. At last, she again received an amount of BDT 30000 for the 4th time for the same purpose. At the end, she earned a profit of BDT 105000 after deducting cost and all expanses. She thought she could expand her sugarcane cultivation and earn more on upcoming future and hope to continue her life happily after bearing all her family expanses.
