Firuja supports and helps her husband to run his business and contribute to family expenses. Together they are running a decorators business. They supplies decorators’ items in social events for rent. They generate a good income from this business to support their family. Their customers request the decorators’ items for weddings, children's birthday parties, religious and political gatherings, etc. They rent out chairs, tables, utensils, bedding etc. Their greatest challenge is obtaining customers in their small village.

With this loan she plans to offer a good quality lifestyle to her family.She wants to reinvest the profit to further grow the business. Her full thanks go to BJS and Milaap.
