Excerpt: Culture, community, and collaboration inspired sisters Tahura Holly, Jahura Hobby, and Humayra Bobby to open their own small businesses to fill different needs they saw in Metro Detroit.
The family moved to the United States in 1995 from Bangladesh to Hamtramck. Their father, Rezaul Karim, left behind business ventures and had to begin all over again. Due to his degrees not transferring over, he took community college courses in computer science while working the night shift at Dunkin’ Donuts. He got back from his shift just in time to drop the girls off at school.
