Tailoring service

Basamma is from Honegere in the Yadgir district of Karnataka and dreamed of becoming a teacher at one point. She is from a large family of 12, including her parents and ten siblings. Her father’s income as a farmer was barely enough to cover their basic needs and education expenses. Basamma picked up some tailoring skills from a friend while also attending college to supplement the family income. She also bought a sewing machine at this point. In the beginning, she made clothing items for herself and her family members. But she didn’t feel confident about doing a business out of it. As part of an entrepreneurship training program she joined, she had to create a business plan for something she aimed to start. This was when she made a tentative plan to start a small ladies' corner store. This is something she has her sights trained on down the road. But in the meantime, she has created a tailoring centre. She has started stitching blouses and is feeling optimistic about the future.
