households graduated from extreme poverty in Bangladesh
Nabisubi Berna joined our family eight years ago as a credit officer. She wanted to do two things with her career as a young graduate – join a big organisation and use her skills to work for good. Working directly with people living in poverty gave her a sense of belonging, and she is still in touch with the first village groups she formed. Her personal life has progressed in parallel with her professional career. Nabisubi has been promoted from credit officer to branch manager and then to area manager, and has also held multiple posts in village organisations, from a financial adviser in a woman’s trust group to a treasurer in a Bakyala twekembe group.
Nabisubi has become a trusted mentor for her clients, colleagues and many others in her village. When she is not at work or working for her community in a formal role, she supports children from her village to go to school and works together with her colleagues to maintain a commercial-sized poultry and vegetable farm.
