Surveys in the Industry enlighten us that 50% of women retire at the age of 30 to take care of their children and 48% of women drop within four months of returning from their maternity leave. If we think of it psychologically, there is a need for more comfort for women at work, managing the household and the work side by side is itself a challenge and when it comes to this point, women sacrifice and dedicate their life towards their family and their children.
