Shohel and Taslima* from Bangladesh owned almost nothing. They had no land to grow crops. Their house was barely big enough to sleep in. And Shohel struggled to find a steady job, making it nearly impossible to support the family.
When Taslima heard about the SALT savings group starting in their village, she joined eagerly. Through the lessons taught at the meetings, she was inspired to begin a basket business with a loan from the group.
Taslima and her husband now work together to make 20 bamboo baskets each day, which provides sufficient income to support their family. They are so grateful to SALT for giving them this opportunity.
We pray that this couple will also be impacted spiritually by the steady diet of Bible-based teaching they receive at SALT meetings.
