In our leather factory, we make an opportunity especially for vulnerable, who is struggling under unemployment problem, who is lasing children own self, and who is coming from countryside to get better income for supporting family. Without having experience, though you can get working opportunity, gaining under minimum wage very cheep construct or even you won't get get none of chance if you gone for another factory in Bangladesh. In our factory, we employ and teach them from very beginning. Though it requires long term and continues effort, we try to produce “professional craftsman”.
They are “high skilfull professional craftsman” as they can produce high quality products. In the future, we are planning to develop living environment, education college and childcare system for those who works in our factory. Not only making job opportunity, but also we aim toward to make a precious, and honorable working environment which would be a worldwide role model as everyone willing to work in that factory indeed.
In Bangladesh, we have more than 160 million people in such a tiny landscape. Due to the huge population, we are facing to large number of unemployment rate. Also, the working environment isnt under the best condition, for example, over long time working, unpaid wages and so on. CEO of BLJ Bangladesh co.ltd, Faruk Hossain joined Borderless Japan aspiring to solve the poverty. After thinking to various business projects, as focusing on helpless people in city, this leather brand business has established.
Bangladesh is predominantly Muslim country. Religious festival called “Eid” will be opened once a year. In this festival, those slaughtered livestock,such as cattles also dedicated to Allah. Therefore, as well as the beef is large amount of distribution consumption, a large amount of cowhide will occur. By the introduction of technology from developed countries in Bangladesh, this cowhide and development "leather tanning" industries that processed into leather, it has become a leading leather exporter in the world. However, from the leather as a raw material of various types of leather, put bags and business cards, a technique for manufacturing and processing to the final product, such as a wallet is poor, the added value of Zhu domestic Bangladesh had become a small.
Thus, BLJ Bangladeh Corporation has started to corroborate Japan's leather production technology with the competitive "leather" industry to carried out until the production of the final product in Bangladesh factory, a system to deliver a reasonable products to our customers with high quality, has built.
For those who was suffering from poverty, to survive the day was all on a daily basis. Therefore, though we ask about the "dream" of each of the fresh staff when they enter the factory, it will not easily answered . BLJ Bangladesh Corporation aim toward to create a lot of employment, while helping not only obtain a stable income, but also in order to be able to draw a "dream" of their own. We dream to have that type of platform where member will have dream and they work hard toward that dream everyday. Under such circumstances , we want to solve the Bangladesh of the social problems in their own hands , the fellow that , and the support to continue to commercialize their ideas to management . When they began to efforts towards its success , Bangladesh situation believe that will change even greater.
