Champions of change
Apshana Khatun was just three months old in her mother’s womb when the sole breadwinner of the family, her father, passed away. To support them, her mother started a vegetable shop. However, due to her illiteracy, the business collapsed and Apshana had to drop out of school. With the help of NFCC’s program RUPANTARAN, Apshana learnt how to start a business with a small capital and sustain it. She re opened the vegetable shop and generated so much revenue that she was able to continue with school and also support her mother and herself.
