What Are They Saying About Us

I enrolled in a Food and Beverage Production course at BSDI, where the motto is "I will be self-reliant" which caught my attention and drew me towards the food business. With the help and support of BSDI, I have completed the professional cooking course and launched my business.

After I left my job for family reasons, I decided to join F&B Production at BSDI. I have received a lot of mental support from our trainer, which has motivated me to become an entrepreneur and start my own business named "Little Chilly: Some Salt."

This is a unique program where ADB supports skills development of young women entrepreneurs. They are making lovely food in the house and they are learning how to start a new startup which would help them to supplement their income. It also gives them confidence that they can go out and make money for themselves and their family. ADB is very proud to be associated with this program and I wish it all the best.
