Women Empowered – amena

Amena, 35
Chunna, Bangladesh

After working as a servant for many years, Amena joined CARE’s “Rural Maintenance Program” (RMP). The program guaranteed Amena a job for 4 years, so long as she saved 20% of her income and participated in extensive human rights, health, literacy, and “Small Business Management” training sessions. Upon completing the program, she had saved 12K, which she used to purchase a cow. Three months later, she sold it for 16k and eventually built her herd to 6 cows, an astonishing feat for a female and former servant. Today, she houses her cows and grows rice on 25 acres of rented land. She wishes to ultimately own this land and double her herd.
