From the confines of a tiny tea stall, Shamsuddin long dreamed of setting up something bigger; a corner grocery shop to provide more security for the future of his disabled child, Rabuil, and to fund a move away from the slum dwelling without electricity in which he and his family of six lived in. But he never managed to get very far due to lack of available finance. Children’s Hope, who had provided nutrition, healthcare and other assistance to Rabuil in the past, awarded him a further grant of US$257 (£210) towards his total investment, which has at last enabled him to set up the shop. Soon his business started to generate the extra cash needed to relocate his family to more secure accommodation, where there is more room and the roof doesn’t leak in the monsoon.
