Sibaprasad is a 44-year-old differently able person living with his parents and his brother. He is the only one earning an income in his family. He has a variety shop in his home. He has 20 years of experience in this field. He earns 10,000 INR in a month by selling packaged food items like biscuits, chocolate, spices, betel, soap, detergent, noodles, oil, pickles, sauces, rice etc. This is not sufficient for him to manage his family.
