I am Monira. I live with my three children and my husband at my parent’s house. My oldest son is working as an engine mechanic. My second son is studying at Madrasa, which is an Islamic religious school. My younger daughter is in class two. My husband drives a three wheel auto that goes around town for fares but he spends all his earnings on alcohol. My parents don’t approve of this, obviously. If I try to stop him or complain, he beats me, even in from of my children. This is why I had to send my first born son to work.


Now I am working at Basha Enterprises and earning money. I want to be fully independent and support my family.
