RC Burhanpur, RID 3040, helped 12 underprivileged women procure sewing machines on instalment basis with the aim to make them financially strong and self-sufficient. To get a machine under this project, the beneficiary had to make an initial payment of ₹1,250 and the balance would be collected as ₹370 a month. “Only if they pay for their machines the women will have a sense of ownership and dignity. Some of our club members pitched in for those who were not able to pay the initial instalment,” said club president Rizwan Abbas, adding that the club had also provided 10 sewing machines last month.
