My name is Mini. I am living with my parents. My mom scavenges trash for money. My husband abused me a lot when I did not bring money from my parents. He left me five years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I wasn’t able to support my daughter. My child and I depend upon my parents. My other sister is not very friendly to me. I am grateful to the Basha office (FOB – Friends of Basha) for this beautiful opportunity. They have taught me about sewing and other awareness topics. Because of this, I have learned to develop my mind. Now I can be free of mental stress. I hope to be able to earn money by making beautiful kantha, support myself, and live in a new way with my daughter.
