Challenge 3: Informal sector

8 out of 10 workers in Bangladesh are engaged in the informal sector, where low wages and poor working conditions are common.

21 year old Latif dropped out of school at 15 and joined his uncle’s electronic shop. He is a skilled electrician with six years of experience, but his workload is not consistent, and people outside of the shop often underestimate his skills. Opportunities to find more work outside his personal network are limited.
