Rubeena Banoo starts copper utensils shop to help her family

Pulwama: National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM) is helping women in far flung areas to transform their lives by making them financially independent.

Rubeena Banoo wife of Reyaz Ahmad from Sangervani, a far flung area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district has established a copper utensils shop at her locality after joining self-help groups of the NRLM department.

Rubeena while talking to ‘Kashmir Vision’ said that she joined SHGs few years back for which she is thankful to the community mobilizer Shugufta Jan.

She said that after some time she took a loan and started a copper utensils shop to earn livelihood and support her family financially.

“I got an idea to start copper utensils shop as my husband is a coppersmith. After I took the initiative I got a good response and we are doing good business,” she said.

She added that NRLM has been transforming lives of women by making them financially independent and the credit of my success goes to this department.

Notably, with success of Rubeena, she has become an inspiration for hundreds of unemployed women and dozens of unemployed women have started different units and trying their luck in different fields.

She said that it is very easy and safe for unemployed youth, especially for girls to start any unit with the help of Umeed and earn their own livelihood and become independent.

She said those who are sitting idle at their residences must join SHGs that will help them to start their units so as to support their family and become independent.
