Sanu grew up with farming, looking after goats and engaging in household chores. For three years Sanu worked in a carpet factory. In March 2014 she joined UCEP (Underprivileged Children’s Educational Program) where she was given informal education & basic sewing skills.
Working at Hattihatti for 2 and half years, initially as a tailor and later promoted to Production Manager, Sanu is currently living in India with her husband. She has a plan to open her own shop in Nepal, once they are back in Nepal. But to keep her work in practice, she stitches her and her husbands own clothes at home.
