Bangla Bazar Fish Market
Shahin Rahman has been an Accompany Capital client since 2018 and has received three loans. Shahin is the president and sole owner of Bangla Bazar Fish Market in Sunnyside, NY who came to the United States from Bangladesh in 1995. Her business sells various products including fish, grocery supplies, beverages, electronics and more. Shahin had worked in the industry for over two years and invested her own savings to start the business in 2013. She now works in the store with her husband full time.
She received her first Accompany Capital loan in 2018 for $30,000 to purchase inventory and during the pandemic she received a $15,000 emergency loan to pay backdated rent and utilities she incurred during mandated closures. Her most recent loan in 2021 for $50,000 was to restock her grocery and beverage supply. In a time when small businesses were struggling, Bangla Bazar Fish Market continued to grow and report profits. In addition to these loan funds, Accompany Capital was also able to provide her with a $20,000 grant through the Queens Small Business Grant program. As a result of their work with Accompany Capital, Shahin and her business are thriving.
