This woman named Koteswari was a previous student from Shoshana sewing centre, Venkatapaiah colony, Guntur.

She was the student from the very first batch at this sewing project. Completed her tailoring course(2008-09) batch.

Basically belonging to an agricultural family. Illiterate, daily worker. Husband is also a farmer.  Mostly we have girls and young women at our sewing projects with only a very few ladies who are above 45yrs of age.
At this age she wanted to join the free stitching class. Her daughter is married and has school going kids.
Elder son is recently married and younger son is an engineering student.

She is staying along with her family in a small house. Even though she is from a below middle class family she has not much responsibilities like other needy women in the centre since her children are grown up and they are self dependents.



It is difficult for her to work in fields at this age so she took up tailoring which she could as well work from home. After finishing her course she is working as a tailor at home and supporting her family.
