“Chicken Business Veteran Taijul Islam Optimistic for Economic Recovery in 2024 despite Challenging 2023”
My name is Taijul Islam, and for the past 19 years, I’ve been immersed in the business of selling chicken in my hometown of Munshiganj. Reflecting on the year 2023, it has been a challenging period for both my business and personal life. The landscape has shifted, and the cost of living has surged, putting a strain on my financial well-being. Despite my two decades of experience, business profits have dwindled, and losses have mounted. It’s disheartening to witness a decline in what was once a thriving enterprise.
The challenges of the past year have left me hopeful for a brighter future in 2024. As I anticipate the coming months, I find solace in placing my trust in a higher power. The year ahead lies in God’s hands, and I am optimistic that favorable changes will come.
One of my earnest hopes for the upcoming year is for the government to intervene in the escalating prices of essential commodities. A reduction in prices would not only alleviate the financial burden on businesses like mine but also contribute to the overall well-being of families struggling to make ends meet. Such measures would undoubtedly provide a much-needed respite and pave the way for economic recovery.
In the face of adversity, I remain steadfast in my determination to weather the storm and steer my business back to prosperity. The resilience built over nearly two decades in the chicken-selling trade fuels my optimism for the future. As I welcome 2024, I extend my heartfelt wishes for a Happy New Year to everyone, with the sincere hope that it brings positive changes and prosperity to us all.
