One of my friends who had completed training in GMR Varalaskshmi Centre for empowerment and livelihood has suggested me to undergo training here. I joined the electrical course for 4 months and got trained to become an Electrician.
Today I have secured a good job at Surabi Electricals and earn Rs. 9000/- Per month. After having taken up the job my family has been able to cope with the financial problems. I want to get technically experienced and hope to become an Electrical contractor.
