Farhana Nazira Khuku has grown up in the capital since childhood. At the end of his studies he chose business as his profession. He started a block-batik business on a small scale from 2008 with the savings of Rs 16,000. He started to see the face of success after going through enough ups and downs.
Lives in Mirpur, the capital. She is a single mother. He is responsible for two children and elderly parents. Khuku was successful enough as a woman entrepreneur. He has two showrooms at Shah Ali Shopping Complex in Mirpur. He built his own production house. The showroom and production house have 10-12 employees. At the end of the month, he was also saving some money with the expenses of the family and the salaries of the employees. Never had to reach out to anyone. Rather he has always extended a helping hand to others.
Sesame sesame business is now exhausted in front of your eyes. The corona epidemic is swallowing his hard work for so many days. Khuku lost capital in the first push of Corona, almost zero, and in the second wave, Khuku lost the last Sambaltuku.
In words, Farhana Khuku told Kaler’s voice about her pain and wailing. ‘I’m really disappointed. I never thought the known city would become so ruthless. I never imagined that time would be so cruel. I really do not know what to do now! How long will you stay? There was a lot of damage in the lockdown last year. This year I thought I would make up for it. From the beginning of the Corona lockdown last year to the present lockdown, I have lost Rs 5 million. I am making products by investing full capital. Nothing could be sold on Baishakh and Eid-ul-Fitr as the shops were closed for two consecutive months last year. Later, a limited number of shops were opened on Eid-ul-Adha, but the sales did not go well. This time I was preparing to overcome that loss. As the previous capital was exhausted, this time I took a festival loan of Tk 7 lakh from the bank. Lockdown again! ‘
The dog’s voice stopped. With a sigh, he said again in a faint voice, “The shop is closed again in this lockdown. I have made eight and a half thousand pieces of Punjabi for the shop. The shop was open for a while before Boishakh. But the buyers were few. Now that situation, my staff is somehow continuing. “Make us work at home,” they said. Still, I do something. ‘I don’t know what to do in this situation. How to pay the loan installment, the salary of the workers or how to pay, there is a family! But my business is closed! ”
Asked if he was aware of the government’s incentives, Khuku said, “No, I don’t know anything about the government’s incentives. I myself am with several organizations. I have not heard anyone apply for incentives there either. Apart from this, we have not received any kind of cooperation from any NGO or organization. ‘
