Due to Challenges in India, Women Become Entrepreneurs

ChennaiIndiaStreetLife

An all-women fish-pickle unit based in Chennai-India, operated and owned by Sea Dot, a self-help group of female fish workers whose communities were shattered by the tsunami of Dec. 26, 2004, has become a way to build back lives for the women’s families after the destruction of their houses and fishing boats.

Many of the women involved in Sea Dot have no other skills then to do what they are doing so the thought of losing their jobs is scary but not as frightening as what they have already been through with the tsunami.

What the women have learned in the course of rebuilding their lives is how to run a community business efficiently and become entrepreneurs:

In 2008, the women took charge of the unit, overseeing its official registration in the name of their self-help group and bar-coded to identify their products worldwide. They divided responsibilities for purchase of raw materials, managing accounts, marketing, maintenance, quality control and redress grievances.

There’s no turning back on thriving.  Read the entire article:  Women of the Tsunami Face Business Survival Test
