“Who knew that I will be an entrepreneur one day”- Suman, Totally blind, Entrepreneur, village Silari
Growing up as a blind was not easy for me. I always wanted to be considered as worthful in my family. I lost my father in the age of six years and my family of four got dependent on my mother. She managed by doing daily wage work and raised us. I always dreamt of working and earning but unknown about its possibilities. Dalit Sangh trained me on Self-Help group & its benefits, after that I came back to my village and formed a group of ten females. I found that a group has so much of strength. We took loan of 1 lakh rupees from bank and purchased ‘Dona’ (Paper bowl) machine, we sell it in local market and in Bhopal. I earn 2300 rs per month and gradually this amount is increasing. I am very thankful to Dalit Sangh for making me part of their programme.
