Akash's parents make less than $2 a day laboring in the fields to extract fibers from the jute plant. These fibers are used to produce a rugged cloth. Though both his parents work, the task is difficult and provides only meager provisions for Akesh. His family can't possibly pay for his education or all of his basic needs.
