Guddi, Frontier Markets Saheli

❝ My confidence has increased very much, and people’s respect towards me has improved. My family doesn’t stop me anymore. Why? Because everyone knows what I am doing. And because of this, I can speak to anyone I want, without fear. ❞

❝ At first my children used to go to a government school, then I thought now that I’m earning, why shouldn’t they go to a private school? So I got them admitted to a private school with my own income. ❞
