I am fundraising to help Ameena and her group to get a working capital loan


Prarthana SHG of 13 members was started in 2013. Most of the members are migrants who came to Bangalore in search of livelihoods.  The women are from West Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. When they came they had zero skills they underwent a SMO Training at Industree & learnt stitching. After training the group was handhold for a year & gradually they merged with umbrella Producer Company for marketing & orders. Today the members collectively produce 4500 garments a month & earn about Rs. 7000 monthly.

Leader of group, Ameena says, “My husband works in Kuwait & it is difficult to get regular support. Hence the regular salary from the group helps me to sustain myself & my 11 year old son”.

The group does work on labour contract basis & needs working capital loan of Rs 5 lakhs to ensure salaries get paid till payments come from buyers.

Rs.0 raised

Goal: Rs.1,000,000
