Now everybody got married,settled and she is left alone with her younger sister who is mentally disabled. All they have is a small one room hut. .She is living on small income as a coolie. Health and age wise also it is getting difficult for her to work as a coolie, so it is very hard for her to run the house.
She is interested to learn stitching with which she could help herself to earn her living working from home so she joined the free stitching classes at Shoshana sewing centre, Nagaralu sponsored by Shoshana, Germany.
