Samhita-CGF’s collaboration with Tisser brought together multiple partners and funders committed toward the holistic growth of vulnerable women artisans by layering on complementary interventions. Google, MSDFF, Vinati Organics supported access to credit for the artisans, with an RG repayment rate of over 97%. The participants also received digital and financial literacy/prudence training through Linkedin as well as access to at least 2 social security schemes/entitlements through Samhita-CGF supported by CMS Swasti.

Dr. Megha Phansalkar, Founder – Tisser Artisans Trust, talks about how the partnership with Samhita-CGF through REVIVE ignited their entrepreneurial spirit in these women artisans, and paved the way for a brighter, more inclusive future.
