Meet Sathiya Sundari - beautician, single mom, survivor, SHERO.
A strong women, Sathiya has survived many struggles - a tough marriage, unsupportive in-laws and the fight for a livelihood to support her little girl and her elderly parents. “I have 10-month old baby named Amritha, and she and I live with my parents due to a lot of trouble in my in-laws home,” shares Sathiya.
Now, everyday Sathiya sets out with her little one on a cycle, bringing her expertise to the doorsteps, in and around her village in Tamil Nadu. But as we all know too well, the idea of a professional taking her baby to work, is not an accepted norm in India.
Sathiya has arranged INR 50,000 from her savings and loans from her gold, and needs another INR 67,150, to set up her parlor. She even has a lovely name picked out - ‘Ladies Special’, and has already excitedly printed the banners.
Now, all she needs is your help to set up the parlor premises. The cost for setting up is as follows:
|Budget for the ‘Ladies Special Beauty Parlor’|
