From a Street Vendor to Owning a Shop

Mehandi, hails from Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh, embarked on his journey into the world of small-scale startups as a dignified man, dedicating countless hours to mastering the art of customer handling in the market.  Following his father’s dismissal, Mehandi made the decision to transform his passion into his profession.

Nonetheless, the path to success proved to be anything but easy. The initial days were challenging, as Mehandi took on multiple roles – acting as a purchaser, accountant, and more. He began his profession as a street vendor, and over time, he decided to rent a shop and stock it with goods. Unfortunately, due to a lack of capital investment, he couldn’t offer a complete solution to his daily customers’ needs. To overcome this obstacle, he sought self-employment support from the Human Welfare Foundation, which enabled him to fill his shop with inventory.

Over the past year, he has continued to operate his shop through his own efforts. He has also prioritized investing in his daughters’ education and even ventured into additional income streams, such as a battery rickshaw, using the earnings from his business.
