Monku Kadma, 29 years old was born and bought up in Khirpai, Ghatal. She studied till class seven and then had to leave her studies. Monku got married at the age of 16 and was mainly involved in household work, farming and taking care of her two kids aged 9 and 11 years.
When she got to know about the mat weaving cluster in her locality, in the year 2019, she was amongst the first ones to join and the only one from her society. She showed keen interest in learning and was willing to become a part of the group.
As a keen learner, Monku was quickly able to grasp the weaving skills and currently she is one of the most intelligent craftswomen of her group. She takes initiatives and because of her calibre she is now the Vice President of this society. Being confined and limited to farming and household chores to now being involved in something that helps her contribute towards her family’s livelihood makes her extremely happy and contented.
