Joygun is from Bangladesh and has received training from Oxfam in growing and selling chillies.
Joygun says “I’ve been vice president of the CBO (chilli producers’ group) for two years and I enjoy it. I like the meetings because we learn things, like how to grow more chillies or how to make our cows fatter. Before, I was afraid to speak to new people, but that’s changed because of the CBO. I like being a leader – when I stand in front of lots of people, they respect me – I can give advice. It feels good."
