I was born in a small village around Hyderabad. Throughout my childhood I struggled for my family’s acceptance for who I am, my gender always made me feel like an outsider. Out of frustration, and to start afresh, I decided to move to Mumbai.
When I came to the Big City, I was immediately embraced by the transgender community here. They provided for my accommodation, got me sarees to wear and even helped get me a job at a dance bar. I can’t be thankful enough to them for helping me sustain a living here.
While I make enough money to just get by, I struggle to live a respectable life. I fear that my current circumstances will never get me acceptance in society.
I want to earn my dignity – I want to start my own Saree shop.
I had applied for a business loan to start my small business, but the loan application got rejected for who I am – a transgender person. But I am determined to get on my feet and earn my respect by starting my own business.
I need your support in form of Salaams. Help me live a dignified life as a respected member of the society. Help me get my #LoanKaHaq
