Grocery and cosmetics shopkeeper
33 years old
Khawarani village, Bassi, Jaipur
Seema used to weave carpets and rugs, like other women of her community, in the village. Carpet weaving is an intense job, and she had to quit it, because she was the only woman in the house and had no help. Her parents-in-law had died when her husband was young. Her husband quit his job in Jaipur and put up a grocery shop in the village, to take care of the family. The loan from Arth helped her start a ladies items shop. Her shop is always full of customers. They now earn INR 20000 every month. The couple has ambitions to provide the best education to their three children.
