Your Global Impact in Bangladesh!
In rural Bangladesh, it is common for men to be the only provider for the entire family. Caring for his family of five was both challenging and unexpected for Narayan after his father passed away. Without the means to continue his father's business, Narayan's family's survival was at risk. But now, thanks to you and the Global Impact Community everything changed.
Narayan learned about our local partner's church savings group in his community and became a member.
Our savings groups empower women and men to improve their financial well-being and earn a sustainable income. In addition to creating opportunities to lift families out of poverty, our partners also engage Muslim and Hindu communities through the church and share the gospel of Jesus.
After joining the savings group, Narayan took out a loan of 10,000 takas and bought some bamboo. After that, Narayan began to craft baskets by hand and sell them at the local market.
Today, Narayan is a member of the church. He and his family have a sustainable basket-making business that provides for their needs. With the money that he earns, Narayan buys groceries for his family, saves money for their future and pays off their loan.
Pray for Narayan and his family as they grow in their faith. Pray for their business to prosper. Would their testimony of God's goodness through His church reach others in the community for His glory. Pray that our church savings groups would continue to be a blessing to more Muslim and Hindu communities in Bangladesh.
