In Himachal Pradesh, Sandana Devi is among the top 5 highest average monthly income earners of Usha Sewing School initiatives across the country. He averages Rs. 16,000 to Rs. 31,000 per month. Gauri Debnath from Tripura, who was selected by SIDBI under their Entrepreneurship Support Scheme, was given a SIDBI grant, using which she bought sewing machines and expanded her enterprise. SIDBI provided support not only through Mission Swavalamban, but also by providing linkage with COWE (Confederation of Women Entrepreneurs) Mart to sell products online.
