Razia's story

Razia is a 29-years-old married woman. She has been knitting embroidery by her hands at home for many years to support her family. For the sake of her children and to meet household expenses, she started embroidery at home. Her husband provides all raw materials to her for knitting embroidery; she completes her tasks over wooden frame.
