Some of the women also work as daily workers in the tobacco company, domestic helpers agricultural workers etc.

Sewing centre started in this area in 2006 with the main aim of helping these women in their self help. This training program if used properly is a constant income source for them. So far 117 needy women got training in tailoring and embroidery from this sewing project.
