Empowering Latika

Latika is a 32 year old mother with 2 young daughters and a husband. Her husband used to work as a cobbler but the business was not doing well. Latika knows how important education is but they were struggling to pay the school fees. The future of schooling for her 2 girls was not looking very promising.

Latika was one of the first women who joined the My Business My Freedom program a year ago. Latika joined a women’s group where she shared her challenges and dreams. She received her first loan of Rs. 30,000 [AU$356] to help get her cobblers shop back on track. She has just paid her last installment and is ready to receive another loan to continue growing her business. We are so glad to see her business grow so much in such a short time. Her daily revenue is around Rs. 5,000 [AU$59].

Latika is not only making a good profit and making responsible financial decisions but she has become a confident entrepreneur. Wherever there is a need of shoes for the 3 Angels Nepal (3AN) children homes, they reach out to her. 3AN is one of her biggest customers. Doing business with Latika means empowering her. Latika is indeed an inspirational woman!
