Janaki's Story

A Sewing Micro-Business Story

Janaki was a part of a Sewing Micro-Business training that took place in April 2012. She lives in a one room house with her husband and two children. The only income her family recieves is from what little work they can get from working in the fields.

Janaki only received an education through 7th grade.  By the age of 14 she was married and soon after had her two children. 

Before being trained by a team of Gpartners trip participants she had learned a little sewing knowledge from a tailor, but it was not sufficient enough to provide for her family. 

Since her training, she has remained committed and disciplined to learning and getting better.   We praise God in the fact that she has been able to double her income through sewing for people in her village. This extra income helps to provide the basic needs of her family. In fact, she's done so well that in 2013 Janaki came back to help train more women how to start their own Sewing Micro-Business! 

The power of multiplication!

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime. That's our philosophy and we're thrilled to see how it is changing lives through Janaki's story.
