Brief project description:
In Appanapalli village we supported 20 poor women weavers who are skilled in handloom weaving but due to lack of capital investment, they are not able to do the textiles weaving. Hence with the help of the generous USA donor “Open Meadows Foundation” we have distributed capital investment amount to 20 poor women weavers to purchase warp, silk, yarn and colours etc., raw materials. Now these women are able to earn sufficient income through production and selling of handloom products for example : sarees, textile cloth, towels etc., and living with peacefully.
