Meet Shailaja a young woman from rural Kerala who made tailoring her career. She was very studious and industrious, but could not go to college due to family problems and was forced to shoulder her family’s responsibility at the age of 16. She decided to learn tailoring, at a time when women tailors were unheard of. She had a difficult time getting customers as she was new. However, as time went by, things improved. She managed to get a loan from a bank, and gradually managed to establish herself in the village. Now she runs tailoring classes at her business, and her sister is learning the trade. Shailaja wants her sister to finish her studies before she joins her business full time, because she never had the chance to do so.
