The government’s scheme of providing financial assistance to hard-working entrepreneurs has changed the life of a local woman of Bhorihalan village in Shopian. Dasy Jan earned her the title of “Embroidery Lady”. Lauding the efforts of the government, Dasy Jan said, ‘I wanted to earn my livelihood so I went to the handicraft department for help. The department offered me financial assistance of Rs 1.80 lakh. This amount helped me to set up my embroidery unit at home, and to buy raw material like cloth and embroidery thread. Muhammad Syed, the Assistant Training Officer of the Department of Handicrafts and Handloom, Shopian said that Dasy had already registered for the Artisans Credit Card and Wearers Scheme, and was also well versed with the embroidery work. ìShe was only in need of financial assistance. As soon as we completed the inspection of her papers, and made sure that she knew the work…we wanted her work to flourish since the area she belongs from is a poor one. The more she flourishes, the more people she can help employ people. So we sponsored her, and the bank granted her the loan’, he told.
