Azizul Hoque needs to be debt free to survive

Azizul Haque is a 65 year old poor guy with 2 daughters and a son, from Faridpur district. Due to his illness he has a taken loan of BDT 30,000 from local merchants at 10% interest rate with no fixed term. Now to repay this he needs to pay 250 taka daily through rickshaw pulling. He has paid more than 15000 taka but his principal amount remains same. This will go on and he will hardly be able to pay the principal as the profit is 100 taka per thousand evert month. No matter how much he pays, it goes in the profit/interest amount and the principal remains same. He needs to get rid of this and start a small business to survive better.

JIBIKA has estimated an amount of BDT 55,000 to accomplish the mission. This will clear-up his dues in next 4 months and also enable him to start fresh with a vendor business.

UPDATE:

We have paid of all his dues. Now we need 10,000 taka to arrange him a sustainable living. He wants to buy a rickshaw and give it for rent. This way he will earn 3000 taka a month. And he will earn something by himself. When he has a moderate amount of money saved, he may move to his village and start a business there. To help him, please DONATE HERE

We donated further 7500 taka and he bought a rickshaw with his equity of 2000 with it. He is happy now and living a better life.

Feed the Poor in Ramadan

JIBIKA wants to feed at least 20 persons per night including children who live on streets and are have-nots or working poor. We would buy them a dinner pack (polao/tehari/biriyani+water) for each of last 10 days of Ramadan. Every night, we shall feed 20 new people. So our target is to feed at least 200 people in 10 nights within Dhaka and Chittagong. The average cost per meal per person would be BDT 100 (USD 1.25) only. So we are looking for a fund of at least BDT 20,000 or USD 250. Please come forward and sponsor as many meal as you can.

UPDATES:

JIBIKA Foundation in Collaboration with Littleangelsbd.com has started a Campaign where LittleAngels will donate 100 taka for each of its transaction exceeding 800 taka to sponsor a meal to an underprivileged child/person. This is valid for the last 10 days of Ramadan. So if you are looking for buying stuff for your kids, please visit Little Angels at Banani 11.

Finally we ended up feeding 800+ people. Thank you all for supporting. Below is a small video to give you an idea of our campaign.
