“I joined Hand in Hand India’s Integrated Gender-Energy and Enterprise programme in 2013. I was part of a group of 20,000 women entrepreneurs, we were trained in the repair and manufacture of CFL bulbs. I am also proud to have been the select few who got trained as Business Development Service providers to mentor other women entrepreneurs. It’s a huge achievement for me to be at home and earn money!” From CFL technology, Jyothi has also moved to learn LED bulb making. Today Jyothi earns anywhere between INR 15,000 to INR 20,000 from the comfort of her home.
