Business Counseling June, July & August 2015

A total of 140 counselees underwent the session and 65 of them benefited from the sessions. Housewives seem to form the majority of the counselees: it seems to prove that we have a dormant population among housewives who are untapped. The enthusiasm and the zeal being shown by women seeking assistance is an area that can be further explored. Similarly with skilled counselees. Working and student population are small in numbers as it is a demography that is on the edge to take that one step to being an employer or employee.
