I am fundraising to support Padma and her group to increase the productivity


10 members of Rainbow SHG have received training in fabrication of home décor products made from banana handloom fabric. They source the banana handloom fabric from Erode and convert it into beautiful functional products like Shopping bags, Laundry Bins, Storage Bins, Gift Boxes and the like. A young, 19 year old, Padma leads the group. Her vibrancy and charm brings more zeal in the group. The group not only helps in keeping the craft alive but has given more independence to women. According to Padma, unlike other girls in her village who get married at 18 yrs, she has more freedom because she is able to earn and is economically independent. Her parents no longer view her as burden.

Padma, wants to improve the group’s efficiency and increase profits. She needs loan of 5 Lakhs to undergo a design development workshop and training for the group members. The loan amount would also be utilized for creating samples and investment in jigs and fixtures to increase efficiency.

$0 raised

Goal: $2,080
