Habiba and her family live in India with a low monthly income ($80 a month) and no floor for their home. Without a floor, their home is very damp and cold during winter and the family runs the risk for disease in the summer. Also, Habiba’s father, currently, does tailoring work for someone else. If he owned his own sewing machine, he could work directly with clients and earn a higher monthly income for the family.
