Portrait of Tara Parmar, Dan Smith, 2016.
Tara is a garment worker and a trims and finishing professional at MSA Ethos. She lives approximately five kilometers from the factory and commutes on most days by foot each way. Occasionally, if she sees a rickshaw or a jeep headed towards MSA Ethos, she hops on and collects reimbursement from MSA Ethos for her travel expenses. Tara is married to her older sister’s husband’s brother and they all live together with their children and Tara’s in-laws. Tara wakes up every morning at 5:30 a.m. to take care of her family along with her sister and works for two and a half hours manually before headed to work to continue with additional manual work. Tara did mention that she is able to do the work she does because she has her sister’s support in taking care of her family at home.
