Shabana Akhter was born in 1986 in a low-income family in Uttar Gram village of Uttar Gram Thana in the Naogaon district. Shabana’s position is first among 2 brothers and 1 sister of her family. Her father was an ordinary farmer and his mother was the sole wage earner in a family of 5 members. So, after passing class 8 from a local school in the village with great difficulty, she could not study anymore due to lack of financial support. As a result, after passing class 8, she did not get any job in the area and moved to Dhaka for employment. After receiving the news through advertisement of Ismail Spinning Mills Ltd., Mowna, Sreepur, Gazipur, she admitted here as trainee of Fundamental of Yarn Manufacturing course in 2017 as a trainee. After completing the training, she joined at that mills as a general helper with a salary of only BDT 4800.
Since the course is organized in a combination of theoretical and practical classes and the classes are conducted by a number of skilled trainers, she can learn a lot through this course. After 6 months, Ismail Spinning Mills Ltd. authorities were happy with work, her confidence, deep focus and skills were multiplied through this course rewarded her with promotions as an operator and increased her wages. After that the authorities were pleased with his work and leadership qualities and promoted her to the rank of Senior Lineman and increased other facilities. At present, she is earning a total of BDT 9500 per month including basic salary as well as travel and medical allowance and other facilities. The good news for her is that she is likely to be promoted to supervisor soon. She said that SEIP’s contribution behind everything is incontrovertible. She sends BDT 5500 to the village every month for household expenditures. She said their family was doing much better than before.
Today, she has dreamed of getting this position, especially skill development, salary increase and promotion only because of SEIP Training. If she had not received such skills training, she might have been able to work as a general helper. But big dreams could never be seen. So, she is deeply grateful to the authorities of SEIP, BTMA and Ismail Spinning Mills Limited as well. Shabana Akhtar’s future dream is to work in a higher position by gaining more skills in the spinning industry and to live happily and peacefully with her family in a beautiful and pleasant environment.
