Rebuilding life after Rana Plaza

From worker to owner

Haunted by the Rana Plaza collapse Nasir Uddin Sohel could not face returning to a large factory. After receiving counselling from ILO he used his compensation money to setup his own small garment factory. A year on, the business has grown from two sewing machines to eight and he now employs six other Rana Plaza survivors. ILO support to Nasir was provided through a programme funded by Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
