Before working for Unipads I used to work as a household maid, it was hard work with low self-respect and low pay. However working for Unipads not only has restored my self-respect but also income from it helps me send my children to private English medium school. I am very happy and hopeful for a better life ahead.

Inspite of being a diabetic and high blood pressure patient I was forced to work as a daily wage labourer at construction sites to support my family. Luckily I happened to meet Geeta Madam during a charity event organized at our chawl. On interaction with her I found about their work and was eager to join them. Unlike work as daily labourer this work gives me a steady source of income without compromising my personal health.

I always wanted to work and earn money as I felt that women should come forward to help the family in all possible manner. My husband was supportive of me but owing to my limited education of high school I could not find a respectable job and so my determinations were almost shattered. Then one day I saw an ad for sales women and went for the interview. The rest is history, today as women I am successfully selling a product manufactured by women and for the women. I aspire to become area manager with my hard work and dedication. Thank you team Unipads for letting me live my dreams.
