Abstract: The Tilothu Mahila Mandal (TMM) runs a school, college, hospital, and several micro-entrepreneurship initiatives. Among the entrepreneurship models is the building centre, the TMM Nimriti Kendra where both men and women are trained together, leading and working on several habitat and construction jobs. The centre has trained over 120 women from Tilothu and neighbouring villages. Women working in the centre feel there is no difference in the quality or quantity of their work when compared to men. They do feel that men tend to quarrel a lot amongst themselves, which in turn affects the general morale of all the workers.
