Artisan: textiles

My name is Shokina. People say how lucky I am that I have a good job in a good office. I didn’t ever work before and my husband abused me. Now I am able to support my family independently.


My daughters learn good skills at Basha’s day care centre. All the staff respect me and I appreciate that. My neighbours now respect me too. I feel good about being employed.


Now I have a new responsibility at Basha Enterprises and I am helping our supervisor Shima and other women. I love my job. I want my daughters to study and someday I want to buy land in my village.
