Shahinur, a young entrepreneur from Habiganj, Bangladesh has come a long way since he started his poultry farming business over a decade ago. He was the sole provider for his large joint family, consisting of his mother, two sisters, one brother, and his wife Shimu and their two children. Poverty had prevented him from continuing his education but Shahinur was determined to make a better life for his family.
With an entrepreneurial spirit, Shahinur embarked on a poultry farming journey. Through hard work and dedication, he expanded his business over the years and gained a reputation for his sincerity and success. By embracing a relationship with iDE, Shahinur received training and gained access to seed capital loans to expand his business.
But things were not always easy for Shahinur. The COVID-19 pandemic and a massive flood caused him to make no profit in 2020 and 2021. However, he managed to overcome these setbacks. Shahinur embraced modern technologies, learned labor and time-saving techniques from YouTube, and, after training with iDE, maintained proper records of his business.
Shahinur established himself as a trusted and reliable entrepreneur. Now, Shahinur's poultry business is thriving, earning him 33% more profit than the previous year.
What's next for Shahinur
At first, Shahinur was reluctant to use modern technology. However, now he is eager to learn about new labor and time-saving technologies and to try out innovative strategies to grow his business.
