I work in Bangalore Greenkraft Producer Company as a Supervisor, with a team of 25 people reporting to me. I joined the company 10 years ago (2005) as a Helper and today I have climbed the ranks to become a Supervisor.

Married at the age of 19, I am a mother of 4 children, 3 girls and 1 boy. I lost my husband to an accident some years ago and I had to learn to provide for my family on my own. Industree Foundation provided me with opportunities to learn and develop leadership skills. It has given me a new sense of confidence. Today my entire team respects me and shares all their problems with me. I feel happy when I am able to guide them and they listen to my counsel. We are also one of the high performing teams in BGK. We consistently achieve higher production than given targets and have set an example of teamwork amongst all groups. I really appreciate my team’s hard work and I feel like they are my extended family.

Seeing my progress at BGK, my daughter has also joined the company. She joined the company as a Helper in my team. I was able to train my daughter and today she is promoted to level of a Tailor. I am very proud of her and I hope she also becomes a supervisor like me in the company… or maybe even higher than me.

BGK has a very unique culture.Not just Directors of our producer company but also at the community level support us by our SHGs, and at a local level by the Foundation. This support has enabled women to take charge of things.

Today, I am learning how to speak English better and how to train other women who join the company. I hope someday I will be a Production Manager or a Director, but even if my daughter becomes one, I’ll be very happy!
