She always wanted to provide them with a good education and, since her husband’s income is not enough to provide the family with a good quality of life, Nafisa decided to start a new business, selling dried fruits. So three months ago, she started her business selling dried fruits.

With the aim to develop her abilities in business, she studied at the course, ‘To Get Ahead’ in a women's organization and she got enough skills about business. Her husband helps her with business. She will be a very successful businesswoman since she is hard-working and smart.
