My name is Pinjira. I have worked with Basha since 2018. I don’t need to ask for anything from anyone in my family. I have changed and I am now independent. I can work here safely and receive a proper salary. In five years time I would like to be a business person. I have a daughter. She likes to read books. I know the value of education so I will give her an education and try to do the best for her. She is my world. I feel happy and proud of myself when I think that foreigners are using blankets that are made by us and that they value our work. I can make all types of blankets. All are easy for me to make because I have been working here for a long time. I help others when they need or ask help from me. Now that I am taking care of my family, I can say that I am a strong woman.
