A combination picture shows K. P. R. Priyadarshani, 54, as she poses with her 16-year-old son Ramika Lakdin, and Priyadarshani working with her sewing machine in her home at Wanathamulla, Colombo, and Sri Lanka, August 4, 2022. "For the last two years, I have sewed clothes for a kids' clothing shop. But with the onset of the economic crisis, we have experienced a drastic drop in the buying of clothing, as people don?t have money to buy food, let alone clothes. I expected to earn more but it's very difficult because of the present economic conditions," said Priyadarshani. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "KIM COLOMBO ECONOMY" FOR THIS STORY.
