Meet Fulma, a BRAC Village Organization member and community health promoter in Bangladesh. Every month she visits nearly 250 households, providing basic health education and services and selling health products such as soap, deworming medication, condoms and sanitary napkins for women.
By selling health products, Fulma can supplement her income while providing an invaluable service to her community. Her best sellers are antacid, oral saline and deworming medication. Fulma told me she has gained respect in her community by working as a health promoter, and people often come to her when they have questions or health problems.
