They are 6 members in a family. Before joining the Self-Help Group, she was housewife and her husband is a driver. With their financial condition, it was difficult for them to manage the family, hence through Jnanavikasa center she got information about self-employment and bought tailoring machine.
At first, she took Rs. 20,000 Pragathinidhi and used it for agriculture development purpose, later she took Rs. 50,000 for vehicle repairing and agriculture purpose, again took Rs. 1,00,000 Pragathinidhi to buy another vehicle. They started improving financially, after joining Jnanavikasa center she developed her interest in self-employment and started tailoring work, from tailoring work she earns a monthly income of Rs. 5,000.
She says all this success was possible because of the blessings from Lord Sri Manjunatha Swamy, Rev. Shri. D. Veerendra Heggade and Matrushree Hemavathi V. Heggade.
