Delwara dreams of owning a dairy farm

Delwara of Gournadi is one of those women who never gives up hope. Her husband, Miazuddin, is a day-laborer. Delwara’s optimistic attitude has brought a change to this family’s life. They are still poor and have no land, but they can now look forward to better days. This is because of an interest-free loan under the Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh Comprehensive Poverty Reduction Program (CCDB-CPRP).
Before connecting with CCDB in 2007, Delwara took out loans from various organizations with the hope of overcoming poverty, but it did not happen because of high interest she had to pay. Her experience with CCDB-CPRP was different.
In May 2008, she got an interest-free loan to buy a milk cow. The cow is giving her four liters of milk each day. Delwara is confident that she will be able to pay back the loan by regularly saving some of the money that she gets from selling the milk, after meeting her family’s needs. Then the cow will be really her own.
Delwara dreams of a big farm where she will have a number of milk cows and earn lots of money by selling milk.
