From a class 8 dropout, Sunita becomes a successful entrepreneur
Sunita lived in a small rented room in Kishangarh with her husband and two children.
Her husband works as an insurance agent. His earnings depend on commissions on sold insurances. His earnings are very meager, and they found it very hard to manage their household expenses. They also found it hard to handle the school fees for their children.
Sunita has studied up to Grade 8 and did not have any additional skills. She wanted to help her family by taking on a job but not having enough skills was a roadblock.
On the guidance of a well-wisher, Sunita joined the Cutting & Tailoring under TECOS at Kamalini Kishangarh center. She gradually found a drastic change in her life within a year. She learned to interact with people around her and gained self-confidence through her course.
She started practicing stitching at home from whatever she learned from Kamalini classes and gave different design patterns to the clothes. After completing the two levels of the course, she started stitching clothes at home. She was really good at her work. Her customers appreciated her work and referred her to other more customers.
Slowly her business grew to her earning a stable income. She went on to complete the third level of the course and is now practicing her tailoring profession full time.
She started to earn 6000-7000 per month. This additional income supplemented the family income. She is now confident about providing a better future to her children.
