Sanjani Devi’s shift from house-wife to working mother took courage.

The paradigm shift from house-wife to working mother took courage, efforts and hard work. It was never easy for Mrs. Sajani Devi, a 25 years old mother who lives her life as housewife since she got married at Baksara village, Godda.

ASDC started tailoring training program at Ranginiya village (2 Km away from Baksara village) in the year 2017 for rural women with the objective to provide life skills so that these trained women can start their own income generation activities. Mrs. Sajani Devi came to know about this program through her friends.

The trainer of the skill development centre has helped to explore her talent and innovativeness in due process. As she started to capitalize her talent, the need of having her own sewing machine was felt. Since she could not afford to pay the price at one go, she approached her SHG leader and requested them to sanction loan amount of Rs 7000/-. Her request was granted and she got the required amount. By beginning of the year 2018, Sajani Devi was able to purchase brand new sewing machine by her own. “I was thinking of having my own machine since the day I learnt stitching because it will save my time. So, I shared my idea of getting loan to my group leader. The SHG has supported me by granting my request. Now, I sit at home and do my business and at the same time, I can look after my home as well. I could not thank enough to my group. Also, ASDC has helped me a lot.
