I underwent a very critical issue for the past two years as I signed a bond as guarantor and I didn't know how to handle it emotionally and more legally as I had no experience with it and I could not seek help from anyone financially. The founder of WEI immediately guided me to a legal advisor who was very kind and understanding to find a solution for the same legally and am finally free from the stress and back to my healthy activities physically and mentally. Thanks to Women Entrepreneurs India and the Founder for the unconditional support."
