Maya Ganesh Patil

Saree selling business

After Maya's husband passed away during Covid, her in-laws asked her to leave the house and seek accommodation elsewhere. With support from the UN Women's SCE programme and her federation, she completed enterprise training and started a saree business with a loan of INR 50,000. Through this arrangement, she procures sarees and sells them in the village. Due to her hard work and business sense, she has made a name for herself. She sells around 4-5 sarees every day with a daily sales of INR 2000 and a margin of INR 800 per day. She has set up her establishment and takes care of her immediate family.
