Halima(27) was a garment worker residing in Bauniabaad, Dhaka, Bangladesh. She started working in the textiles when she was barely 14. Over a decade of her job experience in the garment industry made her extremely efficient and skilled in her job. However, due to the policy of garments industry where they prefer young workers, she was fired when she turned 26. Eventually for living she moved on to working in a sweat shop where the poor working condition was becoming intolerable for her, everyday! The low wages used to make it even worse. Constant verbal abuse and 15hours working day would bring her only $3 a day.
Halima was looking for a solution that could give her the FREEDOM to work on her own while giving her enough income to support her family. Synergy platform was just the right choice for her!
