A loan helped to purchase building materials, electrical supplies and other items for resale.

Tejan's story

Meet Tejan! He is 38 years old, married and has two children between the ages of 11 and 13 years old. Both are currently attending school.

Tejan runs a shop and sells building materials, electrical supplies and other items to his customers. He has been in this business for the past 15 years and works 12 hours per day, six days a week. His main challenges are the increase in the dollar rate and the high cost of customs duties.

Tejan requested a loan from Brac that he will use to purchase more stock for resale. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him to take better care of his family and to educate his children.

In the next five years, Tejan wants to grow his business into a very big shop. He says thank you for the support and sends his appreciation to Brac and Kiva communities!
