My name is Fatema Akter. I have been working from the beginning at Basha (2011). I am able to live well with my grandchildren. I can live with dignity in society. I once advised a pregnant woman to come work at Basha because I knew she was at risk and she could work safely here. I like to do machine sewing. I can sew the strips of cloth used to make chunky knit blankets very well. I try to give my best at work. Sometimes I can’t do as well because I am older. My dream is for my grandchildren to have good jobs. Their lives will be much better in the future. God has given me so much mercy. That is why I can live in peace.
