I come from Bhojpur, Nepal.
Hira Pradhan is 40 years old and is currently living at Jadibuti. She is originally from Bhojpur. She has been living at Bhaktapur for 15 years with her husband and a son. She used to be a housewife before joining at Manushi. She had no source of income and used to depend upon her husband for money. She joined Manushi 10 years ago, she even didn't know the way of handling the sewing needles before. Gradually, she starting learning about tying technique, different handworks like embroideries, patchworks, appliques and other hand stitches. She now works in the handwork section and tying department. She is a different version of woman today, who earns by herself and supports her family. Manushi feels glad that the products made by those hands who were unaware of the proper handling of sewing needles are now exported to a different market.
