People laugh at and called her *‘iron lady’* because she did a business called Iron Scavenging. Mrs. Ngaineng Misao, mother of 5 children, depends on manual labour – jhum cultivation. The burdens of sending children to school heavily fall on her. Her husband being uneducated can’t help much but only assist her in the jhum cultivation that barely sustained the family. Therefore she took up a job called iron scavenging from rural areas and sells them in Imphal (the state capital) that brings her a good return.
Not to be deterred by how people will judge her she took up the business fully convinced that it is white business because she bought it from the owners at the same time better the world by recycling the unused materials.
“Where would I get money to support my children education if it is not by doing iron scavenging business? In fact collecting unused iron, steel, copper, aluminium etc. from place to place looks shameful but why should I be ashamed of it when people doing black business are not ashamed of their dirty business. With the profit I got out of this business I could send my children to school. Now one of my sons is doing his graduation and I am very hopeful that he will prove the world one day that the son of iron scanvenger can do it.” Mrs. Ngaineng Misao
Mrs Ngaineng needs your love touch so that she regain her normal life. Helping her at this critical moment would be helping the children from becoming orphan and enable the whole family to have a happy life.
