Mamta Reaches Financial Security With Her Husband as Her Business Partner
As we continue to work in remote areas with gender-marginalizing cultural norms, we are learning to support our clients more holistically.
When Mamta enrolled in our programs, she wanted to relocate and get a job at one of our job creation partners, an ethically run, woman-founded manufacturer, but her family forbade it since Mamta would have needed to relocate. Mamta came to Nomi Network several times, hoping to secure
suitable job opportunities, but her family continued to be a barrier. Our program staff suggested Mamta propose a business that Nomi Network
could support with start-up funds since working a traditional job was no longer an option. Mamta came back to us with a proposal that included a
partnership with her husband, which her family enthusiastically supported. She used the start-up funds to purchase a cart for her and her husband to sell vegetables at the local market. Today Mamta is grateful that she is attaining financial security in a way that her husband and family support.
