TEKANI, Bangladesh (AP) — Moushumi's family now has one of the largest homes in their village — two bedrooms plus a living area with walls made of sturdy brick.
Moushimi, who like many people in Bangladesh used only one name, was just 18 when she was killed along with 111 others trapped behind the locked gates of the Tazreen garment factory when it burned last November.
The peace is no longer there.
Since the fire and April's collapse of the Rana Plaza factory building, which killed 1,129 people, Bangladesh's garment industry has been under increased pressure from workers and activists to raise wages and improve working conditions.
The government agreed last month to set up a committee to look into raising the minimum wage of $38 a month.
"When I went there I thought of saving money, coming back, building a home and taking care of my family," he said.
On a good month they can save 2,500 takas ($32), sending some back to Tekani to help care for their daughter and saving the rest.
Most garment workers expect too much when they enter the industry, said Nur Alom, the elected local chairman for Tekani and the surrounding villages.
Villagers say saving is difficult if only one or two people from the family go to work in the factories, but if four or five family members do it, it is possible.
"When we heard of a fire downstairs, we started running for the stairs, but the gates were locked," Hawa recalled.
At that rate, they would have needed to work in factories for nearly 18 years to make as much as the family was paid in compensation for Moushimi's death.
