Rishi’s initiative empowering rural women

Rishi’s initiative empowering rural women

Rishi participated 1M1B Future Leaders Program and worked on a village sustainable project. After a good deal of research and conducting more than 100 door to door interviews in his native village Kallakuru in Andhra Pradesh, he discovered the financial crises faced by farmers of the Village.

 In order to provide sustainability to the farmers and their families, Rishi worked on his idea of providing an alternate source of income for these families, by helping them in creating a sustainable business. With his research he found urban and international market for the Sweets and pickles made by the women of the farmers’ families. Few families with Rishi’s help are now able to generate decent income on a regular basis with the business. He now aspires to extend this idea to the other villages in various parts of the country.
