DHAKA - A quarter of garment workers in Bangladesh spent their savings to cover living expenses during the coronavirus pandemic while 18 per cent borrowed money and nine per cent relied on family support, according to a survey.

The poll, entitled Garment Worker Diaries during Covid-19, was carried out by the South Asian Network on Economic Modeling (SANEM) and Microfinance Opportunities (MFO) during July.

They have now published the findings of the survey of 1,269 workers employed in factories in Chittagong, Dhaka City, Gazipur, Narayanganj and Savar.
