CHHOTAUDEPUR, DECEMBER 14, 2009: On December 10, 2009, 25 girls from the village received a Government certificate for a 45 day long course on tailoring and embroidery. The regional head of NABARD Mr. Gupte was present to hand over the certificates to the empowered girls. The girls were all eager to receive this training which has now given them a new source of livelihood. They would also be allowed special loans from the bank to bring a new sewing machine. The girls took a lot of pains to attend this course daily for 5 hours. They are now happy to begin a new enterprising business in their own villages.
