Husna is a 34 year old businesswoman that lives in Goripalya, Bengaluru. She used to make and sell papads before her sister introduced her to tailoring work. When Husna signed up for the Entrepreneurship Transformation programme she was very passionate about her trade but could not find ways to scale it. She used to receive very few customers and could not keep track of her expenses. Thus, she had trouble keeping track of her savings.
During her training, she learnt skills like compliance and accounting which enabled her to price her stitched sarees better; developed a growth mindset which helped her stitch blouse pieces and other variety of dresses and not just sarees and collaborated with other businesswomen in her vicinity. This collaboration helped her received referrals. Post the completion of the training, Husna has now seen a 35% increase in her customer inflow. She now earns a profit of Rs. 125 on each dress she stitches.
