Large numbers of distressed women including widows, divorcees, housewives and young girls in the northern region of Bangladesh have been achieving economic independence in recent years by sewing garments from handloom fabric.

Contribution of this sewing sector in the rural economy is remarkable, which has been proving significant for poverty alleviation and offering number of future prospects to the distressed women to generate a decent income if patronized properly.

The sector of sewing garments from handloom fabric has been witnessing faster expansion as a number of women of the region are showing interest in this profession as well as the products of this sector are attracting more demands on the occasion of Eid.

This sector is bringing in a new era in rural economy, and in women empowerment as it has been proving helpful for over 60,000 distressed women and girls to become self-reliant.

Many of these women are enjoying economic independence through their own initiatives and assistance from various organizations offering them support, training and inputs, besides, creating marketing facilities for their products.

Hundreds of the other distressed women of the region are also making significant financial contributions for their family by marketing these garments.

The government departments, Grameen Bank and its subsidiary organisations, RDRS, ASA, BRAC and dozens of local NGOs are offering trainings, sewing machines, credits and input supports to these women in order to encourage them in this direction.

Many distressed and unemployed girls of greater Rangpur are receiving trainings on manufacturing readymade garments in various training centres at Kurigram, Rangpur and other areas, at present.

These trainee girls are getting jobs in many national and international garment factories after receiving this training. So, setting-up more such centres would lend a helping hand to the sector, said experts and officials.
