Mamtavati is a household woman who lives in a family of 4 in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh. The family includes her mother-in-law, husband, and a 4-year-old son. As Mamtavati is a part of a Self-help group and has good relation among the women in the community, she was selected for the role of Digital Sarthak.
Mamtavati and her family are very happy after receiving the assets given under the programme and she is also able to earn for herself and her family by providing training and services to the community.
She is not the one to give up easily and always shows the zeal to keep looking for newer methods to find different sources of livelihood by constantly staying in touch with the women she’s associated with.
The association of Mamtavati with the Digital Sarthak programme has greatly benefited her in becoming financially stronger and more self-reliant than before. She has set up a centre at her home itself using the smartphone and printer provided under this programme. People come to her centre for digital services such as photocopies and printouts which helps her to earn on daily basis and along with that, she is also able to earn by providing trainings to women entrepreneurs.
This program has greatly helped her and has also awarded her with the nickname of Digital Didi (Digital Sister) in her own and nearby villages. She conducts training with the women entrepreneurs on how to operate digital devices and smartphones for enhancing their business. This information is targeted to be useful to them in whatever way possible and is kept to the point so that its application can start assisting them immediately.
Money earned through this programme has helped Mamtavati in running her household smoothly and becoming financially independent. She is happy with all the support received and wishes to reach out to many women like her who have limited opportunities and help them in the best way possible.
