Abstract:
This is a success story of a woman agripreneur, Ms. Kabita Borah (58) who primarily deals with handloom and handcrafted products. Ms Borah was born in Purani Tangla village of Udalguri District of Assam. Kabita Borah is a classic example of a successful rural woman handloom artisan and entrepreneur. The example demonstrates Kabita Borah's self-assurance, dedication and willpower in establishing herself as a prosperous rural woman entrepreneur. Kabita Borah has been able to successfully run her small-scale business through group support and cooperation from her fellow weavers. She received quality training, credit and marketing facilities from different financial and governmental organizations. Despite all efforts, the limited market access and high input cost are found to be the major obstacles in this case. However, she weaved success by incorporating innovation and tradition in her products. Her net income is approximately 3, 60,000 per annum. Besides these, she has contributed towards the development of society and empowers women weavers in her community. She is in close contact with organizations and institutes like KVK, NABARD and Handloom and Textile. She also received various prestigious awards and recognition.
