Bhaluka - Textile

My name is Promila. I have many brothers and sisters. My parents couldn’t afford to buy food for our family. So when I was a child my parents sent me to Dhaka to work as a house helper in people’s houses. I did this work for about 30 years but now I lack strength to do the cleaning and cooking needed for this work.

 

It was difficult for me to find any work. I need to work to support myself as I am unmarried. I am thankful for the chance to sew blankets for Basha in my home. My income enables me to buy food to eat.
