Kusum Lata Seth is the founding member of the Lion Pratishtha Mahila Kalyan Kendra in Lucknow. She has managed the operations of a women's welfare group for the last 15 years. Her group makes edible products like pickles.
The women in the group have not only become self-reliant and financially independent but are also able to finance their children's education. These women were not highly educated so Kusum started a venture while focusing on their strengths and skills they already possessed. Gradually, she transformed their everyday work into an enterprising activity.
