A young and determined beneficiary of DIC Bandipora, Shahida Khanam started her journey with a vision of establishing her cutting and tailoring unit and dreamt of creating job opportunities and contributing to her community’s economic growth.
However, she faced various challenges, including limited access to capital.
Recognizing the potential of Shahida’s idea, the industries department offered her financial support which allowed her to secure the capital required to establish cutting and tailoring centre in her locality.
Shahida not only cherished her dream of establishing her own cutting and tailoring unit but also provided employment to other local girls.
She is a shining example of how Government schemes empower individuals to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams, create jobs, and drive economic growth in their communities.
Shahida also serves as an inspiration to others, showing that with determination and the right support, anyone can transform their entrepreneurial aspirations into reality.
