Funding

In the midst of our set back, God's grace, we were able to raise funds to the tune of 15 lacs. A friend of our family, who believed in my passion to make it big, has invested this amount. I owe my confidence to AIRSWEEE and all the sessions made possible by TiE Chennai.

Others

We faced a huge set back when our product package production got delayed for three months. On top of tht, when we received the products, 70% pf the tins were not in a usable condition. It was a huge set back and my first failure. Was devastated, but honestly, whatever we learned in AIRSWEEE training helped me.

I remember menors teaching us from their experiences, on how to step out of the problem and think for a logical solution. I did and we were able to come up with a solution which not only make our product look better but also taught us to fine tune our packing line. It also taught us to always be ready with back up options.

Pay it forward

I had a lovely opportunity of interacting with students of PKR college, Gobichettipalayam when I was invited to share my journey with the them on 14th of July . I was very happy to see the staff of PKR college (Mrs.Kavitha, Mrs.Gomathy) showing great interest in motivating their students in all ways that they can. I shared the floor with another AIRSWEEE participant Timple Luloo and it was like two case studies under discussion how an entrepreneur, a woman can really earn a place for herself and make it good if she sets her heart and mind to it.

I thank TiE and AIRSWEEE for giving us the platform to learn and share. Empowered SomeMore to do a lot more!!! A week later students started placing orders with us and we deliver them at a discount price to help them make an income.
