Hani comes from a poor family. Her mother operates a little food store in front of their house, selling rice and vegetables to the blue collar workers in their village. She came to work for us in our shop as our shop manager. Hani is very efficient and dependable. She is the face of our business in the community and represents us well. Now married, Hani helps her younger siblings through school and University.
Wati came to us for a job. She works hard to learn new skills and be a good employee. After time, she saved up enough money to buy transportation to cut down her travel time to work. When she married, she was the sole money earner for her family, as her husband comes from a poor family of farmers. At her wedding, her uncle who lives in another village farther away, came to us and “you don’t know me, but I have heard about you from my niece and that you are a good employer.” Her family was pleased not only that she has a good job, but that she can stay in her village, safe from being trafficked.
