Salma begum and her family (son and daughter) were left homeless after cyclone SIDR destroyed their home in Gota Para village in 2009. Soon after she was told about the “Fael Khair Program”. She registered in the program and got her first loan.
She purchased a pregnant cow and began a milk business. Soon the cow gave birth to a calf. With 2 to 3kg of milk per day Salma Begum was able to return the loan and even purchase 3 more cows.
Now she makes BDT 150,000-200,000 each year. Her project is a success and her family’s future is secured.
