Success Stories


From a Housewife to a Team Leader!

“I never thought I could be a part of something this important. The AU Udyogini program has allowed me and many more women in my community to free themselves from the binds of home and interact with each other. We share our stories and sentiments which has been helping us in inspiring each other,” says Champa Devi, the Mangodi Making leader under AU Udyogini. She lives in a small village called Aidaan Ka Baas. Married with three kids, Champa has always been a devoted homemaker and can be seen constantly attending to the needs of her family. Like many girls in the rural parts of Rajasthan, she was married off at a very young age and ever since has been tied up in the duties of home, not being allowed to interact with others outside her home or even participate in any social activities whatsoever. Her husband is a daily wage worker and earns a bare minimum of Rs 150/- per day. In that pittance, she has taken care of everyone in the house and their ever-growing needs. Even after being in such a state, she has had a rebellious spirit, has always pursued the simple things in life like being able to speak her mind and make the lives of herself & her family better.


Champa, a housewife, was tied up with the conservatism of society,became independent with the help of AU Udyogini’s Mangodi Making and Marketing program.Owing to her zeal, she now leads a team of 13 women who prepare mangodis every day.

“I am really fortunate that I was introduced to the AU Udyogini Programme,” says Mamta Kumari. It was the other women in her community who inspired her to do something for herself and she thus ended up becoming a part of the ‘Mangodi Making & Marketing’ programme. From the first day itself, she outshined everyone and proved to be an eager learner. Owing to the skills and eagerness displayed by her, she was elected as the leader of her batch upon the completion of her course. She now leads a group of thirteen women who prepare Mangodis and cater to the market demands. They’ve made over 200+ Kgs till date and continue making more.
