Empowering Women into Market Sector

Sheetal with her Customer
Sheetal with her Customer

 

 Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

Stitching and tailoring was a favorite pass-time for  Sheetal, a home-maker from Nashik. Driven by a dream to be an entrepreneur, she decided to turn this hobby into a full-time business. Her customers bring her their old saris and she stuffs them with cotton and stitches soft, comfortable blankets out of these saris. This year was her first time at the Mahotsav and  Sheetal sold out ALL her Dulais, and got orders for even more! These traditional, hand-stitched blankets are hard to find in Mumbai so customers responded very well.  Sheetal made a profit of Rs. 18,000 in the Mahotsav, i.e. more than what she would usually make in a month. She was thrilled with this success and her confidence in her business idea and in her own entrepreneurial skill has grown exponentially. Despite a post-graduate degree, I was unable to get a job to my liking, so I decided to start a business of my own. I like stitching and tailoring, so I started asking women for their old saris, stuffing cotton and making dulais out of them. Participating in the Mann Deshi’s Deshi MBA program taught me to manage my time and resources, plan my finances and market my products better. Watching other women like myself, helped me identify myself as a businesswoman. At the recent Satara Mahotsav, all my dulais worth Rs. 45,000 were sold out and additionally, I received orders to which I couriered deliveries later. I am so excited about scaling my business thanks to Mann Deshi, and even employ 8 other women now. 

Thank you so much for all our supporters !!!
