“I had to quit studies as I was married off after completing higher secondary. My family consists of two children and my husband who is employed in a hotel as a daily wage worker. I always wanted to pursue a career in tailoring and stitching, but family obligations did not allow me to pursue my interests. When a friend recommended about the skill development courses offered by Leather SSC, I grabbed the opportunity and enrolled for the Leather Stitching course. I learnt a lot during the training and practical exposure in handling leather garments. The training helped me secure a job with a Leather product manufacturing unit as a Leather Stitcher with a salary of INR 10,000.

“Since a young age, I had an interest in tailoring and stitching but did not know how to go about it. I could not continue my studies due to the poor economic background of my family. One day, a friend of mine handed me a pamphlet that contained details of the manyskill development programs offered by Leather SSC. I enquired about a few of the programs and finally zeroed in on the Leather Stitching program. I enrolled for the training and received intensive training by my trainers which made me supremely confident of my ability to land a good job. The training helped me secure a job with a leather product manufacturing unit as a Leather Stitcher with a salary of INR 10,000.

“I could not continue my studies because I got married when I was young. My husband works in a real estate office and is the breadwinner of the family. But his income was not sufficient to provide for the whole family. As his income depends on successful client referrals, we have never had a steady source of income.I felt that I could make use of my free time learning a skill and finding a job eventually. A friend of mine informed me about the courses offered at Leather SSC. I decided to join the Leather Stitching program. With this training, I learnt about different types of garments and how to stitch those craft fully.”After attending this course, I was placed at Paragon Polymer Products Pvt Ltd as a Stitcher with a salary of INR 10,000.
