She has been doing this business for 6-7 years. Her husband Anwar had no earning. He was careless about job. He was dependent on her wife’s income. Even their elder daughter started to earn by working at a garment factory. Parvin wished that her husband would start earning so that they can live a solvent life. However Anwar was not willing to work.
