She followed in her mother’s footsteps and began working as a weaver in the leprosy colony group. She began weaving on small looms seven years ago. Always struggling, she persisted on, continually learning to increase her skills and income. Sunita is very resourceful and has always found ways to provide for her family. She took a month-long training course to learn sewing skills. Her very meticulous, detail-oriented skills, and her eagerness to learn got noticed. She and another artisan were selected to train in a leather institute, where they learned all about leather and the machines needed to sew it.
Sunita’s fortitude passes down to her daughters. She wants them to be strong, independent, self-sufficient women. Her oldest daughter is now 20 and will soon have her degree in nursing. Her younger daughter will be finishing school next year and she hopes to be able to provide for her college education, too.
