Jayashree was born in Bangalore, the third child of the family. While she was very young, her family's financial situation became so difficult that she had to give up her schooling. Soon after she started a job training in a garment factory and made it her means of earning a living.
In 2007, Jayashree joined Grameen to buy her husband's auto rickshaw. Their income almost tripled. Now they are making 150 rupees a day (4 dollars). Jayashree hopes to apply for another loan in the future so that she can one day start her own garment business. She feels her dreams will come true with the help of Grameen's microcredit.
