Kusum's Journey

Kusum, a woman of approximately 34 years of age residing in Hastsal area (a low income housing colony in West Delhi) wanted to start her own business but she could only dream about it. She gathered courage to attend one of the meetings held by INDCARE Trust to empower women and encourage them to be entrepreneurs. With her first loan from INDCARE, a small amount of Rs. 5,000/- in 2003, she started a small stationery shop at her own residence at Hastsal. Her next loan was for Rs 10000/-. Since then her shop has grown as has her business, and she now feels equal to her husband when it comes to supporting and bringing home the bread for her family. She is both, socially and economically empowered.
