Rinkal is a garment worker at MSA Ethos. She studied up to the twelfth standard, after which her parents, who also work at MSA at its hospital, were struggling with their income. She decided to work at MSA Ethos because she wanted a profession that allowed her to grow her skill sets and "stand on [her] own feet‚" something that Rinkal feels is discouraged by members of her own community. She wanted to overcome these social stigmas and be able to contribute to her family's wellbeing. Through her earning capacity, she's able to look after her mother's long-term illness and pay for her medication. She's hopeful that her role in the workplace will inspire and qualify other women and their working role in society.
