A ‘Tailor-Made’ Success Story

Hailing from the Khairabad block of Sitapur district, Sufiyan always harbored a dream of starting a business of his own. He learned the craft of tailoring from his father, now aging and ailing. A 10th standard dropped out, Sufiyan grew up watching his father design and stitch clothes for local suppliers. Education was not his fate.

As he had the responsibility of his aging parents and younger siblings. Like his father, he also started working for the suppliers. He had two basic machines on which he worked for suppliers on an order base model. Khairabad which is a hub of household garment manufacturing can provide market opportunities too. Skilled Sufiyan understood the market dynamics and supply chain of the cloth business. He wanted to establish his own small business but lacked resources. The HWF helped him set up his own production unit providing required equipment like commercial machines, design dye, heat press, and small assistance for raw material procurement.

With HWF’s help, he started the manufacturing unit for shirts. His younger brother joined him in the business taking care of the sales aspect. He has employed three tailors on a salary and two helpers on a wage basis. Sufiyan says that “the help from the HWF has transformed my life as my dream to start own business actualized which otherwise looked beyond my capacity.”
