Roshani was living in a slum at the river's edge with her husband, 3 children, mother-in-law, and ailing father. The family of 7 were struggling to survive day to day, and she was unable to afford the cost of sending her children to school. When she finally found Kumbeshwar Technical School (KTS), a fair trade organization in Lalitpur, Nepal, she went through their training program and was able to work from home completing knitting projects. After two months, she was appointed to a full time position in the knitwear section, both knitting and affixing labels to finished pieces. Her job at KTS has allowed her to spend time with her children while earning a living. Her youngest child can go to the KTS child care center while she works, and she is able to send her older children to school. Roshani and her husband have been able to make consistent payments on their debts. Through her work at KTS, Roshani and her family are on their way to economic independence and a better life.
