Dhaka - Textile

My name is Shima.I have one son. My husband has another wife and other children and doesn’t support us financially. As a child, my stepfather didn’t accept me and wasn’t a good man so I grew up homeless and alone in the Mazar (religious shrine).

In my teenage years, I was cared for by different non-governmental organizations (NGO’s). I am thankful that the NGO’s encouraged me to work hard at Basha. I can establish a future for my son and me.

I want to educate my son and own my own home someday.
