Sumi

Textiles

My name is Sumi. I have one daughter and one son. I did training at Pobitra¬†for three months and then got a job at Basha. My life was very painful previously and I didn’t have enough to eat.
My father in law pressured me into shameful work. Now that I work at Basha, my life has changed. I am making good sari blankets and I can earn money and help my family. I have remarried.
I feel proud that I was able to build a better life. My goal is for my daughter to go to school. My son lives with his father.
