Shorobor has a small cottage industry in Dhunot, Bogura. We produce ‘Joined Blankets’ from a piece of clothes. The two-layered blankets are sewn with top quality threads. The extra pieces of cloth inside the layers make the blankets very warm.
We started selling blankets and reaching out to needy people in early November. We argued that since winter falls early in the village, those who need a blanket can use the entire winter.
Alhamdulillah – Our distribution effort has been well worth it. We were able to give blankets in December before winter broke in most places.
‘SHOROBOR’s social business is like that.
We are not a voluntary organization that collects money from people and buys blankets to distribute. Our distribution was early, it might be too late to get the sold money.
Whom do we sell?
- To the voluntary organizations.
- To ordinary people, who bought a blanket for personal use and bought two more to give relatives.
- To wholesalers.
