G S Sumith, Asarapalli Dharani Sandhya, A Dharani Sandhya and M Avinash Reddy, participants in the Y4AB challenge, identified the challenge of income generation among 4 women in their nearby locality. The team helped the women set-up the initial food processing initiative by helping them with quality food processing, operational and financial management, and marketing strategies. The women prepared their first batch of sweets and sold the proceeds by earning a profit of Rs.2425/-. The women beneficiaries worked on setting up the initial supply chain for selling the proceeds to local retailers from the locality. The women are now working on scaling the business and adding more products in their food catalog and will work on taking bulk orders.
The team from Hyderabad has made 4 women beneficiaries Atmanirbhar by supporting them to create livelihood opportunities.
