A loan of $375 helped to buy two additional sewing machines and rent a room for giving training to her village girls.

Matan's story

Matan is a 25-year-old differently-abled lady living with her parents, younger brother, and sister. She is the only one who financially supports her family. Her brother does not have any fixed source of income. He works in the paddy fields as a daily laborer which depends on the season. She runs a tailoring shop at a rented place in a good location in the market. She started with one sewing machine. She slowly involved her friend with some training in the business and grew to owning two sewing machines. Her business is growing with interest from other girls in the village eager to learn and get trained from her. She enjoys teaching what she knows and hopes to give other girls in her village a source of income.

She has requested loan of 20,000 Indian Rupees (INR) from People's Forum to purchase two additional sewing machines and rent a room for training purposes. After some time she can appoint trainees as additional work staff to help her and eventually grow her business. She wants to give her family a good living standard and get her younger brother and sister well-educated to see them work for a multinational company (MNC).
