On April 21, 2018, over 350 Field Officers of SAJIDA’s Microfinance program gathered at Sea World, Foy’s Lake, Chittagong to enjoy a full day of recreation and strategic discussions through a Convention titled “Microfinance Field Officer’s Convention: Breakthrough to Excellence”. Award winning film actor Ferdous Ahmed attended as Special Guest Speaker and delivered an inspirational address for the Field Officers, motivating and encouraging them in their work.
SAJIDA also awarded fifteen best performing Field Officers, recognizing their perseverance and compliance with SAJIDA’s values. The Convention ended with a “lucky draw”, following which the Field Officers enjoyed water rides at Sea World and an evening cultural performance by popular musicians A I Raju, Pinky Chettri, and Susmita.
Also present at the event were Md Monerul Islam Khan, Director, Microfinance, SAJIDA Foundation and Md Emdadul Hoque, Director, Admin and Finance, SAJIDA Foundation. The Convention intended to provide our Field Officers direction, guidance as well as inspiration to apply their efforts towards value-driven work. The Convention also served as a retreat, providing our field staff the time to reflect on their work from a wider perspective, to meet other SAJIDA staff and share their experiences and concerns.
