This is Priya. She lives in Bangladesh. She’s got five
kids. They live on less than a dollar a day. They eat rice and lentils. They bathe outside using buckets. They live in a one-room house that’s
probably smaller than the walk-in closet in your bedroom. Priya has a problem. Every night when she’s done taking care
of meals, laundry, shopping, and cleaning, she lays
down and has a recurring dream. She dreams of creating things for
people, beautiful things. Fabrics and fashion that reflect her unique creativity. She even dreams that she could make
enough money doing this to support her family. She’s gone to school to learn about
block-printing and other fashion techniques.
She’s developed a unique style of her own.
But when she started the business she encountered some serious obstacles.
Her position in society, difficult government bureaucracy, and a lack of loan sources are just a few.
Because of this, somedays she struggles to make enough to put food
on the table.That’s where Sophia came in. When she heard Priya’s story and met
