Mercy, Tailor & Beautician
My husband abandoned me and our two children. I went back to stay with Mother and Father, who could provide food and shelter, but nothing for education. I learned about ANISHA’S micro credit program and applied for a first loan to purchase a tailoring machine. My tailoring was so successful, I took a second loan to purchase another machine and employ one other person.
I could not educate my children in the best way, so I enrolled in a beautician course, bussing into Trichy every day for three months. With my third loan I started my own beautician business. I am happy to say that I have many customers for facial and arm hair removal, gold bleach and fruit papaya facials for removal of dark spots, and child and adult haircuts. I have had to employ two others to keep up with the customers.
The stress of day-long tailoring and beauty treatments has brought on bell’s palsy, which is improving with naturopathic treatments. ANISHA and Prosperity Rings have been a great support for me.
