From Sewing To Management: Becoming A Leader

Sunayana Vishwakarma, married with children ages 13 and 17, is currently manager of Utsaah Cooperative. Her path to this position is a story of hard work and hope. She began working as a tailor in a company when she was 15 and worked for 10 years before her marriage. She and her husband moved from Mumbai to his family village and lived there for 5 years, but there were few prospects for decent wages.

Wanting better for their 2 children, they returned to Mumbai to restart their lives. Sunayana initially joined the Sahara cooperative. When that closed in 2021, the artisans were offered an opportunity to start a new independent business. Many of the artisans were reluctant, but Sunayana was intrigued: "Everyone was scared, but someone had to come forward. I saw this as a great opportunity." She prepared for leadership by learning how to handle issues such as conflicts between new and old members.

"Today I manage everything. MarketPlace saw my potential and pushed me, and I am really thankful for that."

Nice dress

So glad you do some clothes in petite or short. The dress is very nice, good material and good fit. Haven't worn it yet as we need some warm weather here! Arrived quickly and in good condition..
