A Journey To A New Home
Shabnam has been an embroidery artisan at Aashiyana Co–operative for over 21 years. "I always try to save whatever money I can every month because I have seen that emergencies don't tell you they are coming. Also, I really want my younger sons to pursue their higher education, and this requires money."
She has always been very careful with money and spending wisely. As the children have grown, Shabnam and her husband began planning to buy a house. Currently, their house is extremely small and not in a good neighborhood. They have found a flat in the suburb Nallasopara, where homes are more affordable. Shabnam contributed Rs. 30,000 from her own earnings to buy the new home and she is looking forward to settling in someday.
