On the one hand, with an MBA degree, many small items are sold in the youth markets. Are forced to work for 15 to 20 thousand rupees. Leave aside MBA. Four tribal women, who did not even do even minor education, did wonders. With his mind, he built a business whose turnover today is in crores. Of course, these women have become role models for other women today. People are stunned by the success of these four women. These four women, who have taken an initiative to alleviate their poverty by connecting tribal women with employment, are Jija Bai, Sanji Bai, Hansa Bai and Babli.
What is the business doing?
These women are from Rajasthan. Sitaphal produced in the forests has been fortunate. Actually, these four women used to go for wood in the forests. Sitafal produced in the summer there used to dry on the trees and then it would ripen and fall on the ground. It is also called Sharifa. Women started bringing Sitaphal with the wood from the forest. Then they decided to sell these fruits on the road. People liked the fruits in large number and started making a lot of profit. These women laid the foundation of their business before the name ‘Ghoomar’ in Bhimana-Nana, Rajasthan.
These women, who once sold Sitaphal (Custard Apple) in a roadside basket, found the business very profitable. What was it then that the four together formed the foundation of the company. You will be surprised that the women’s company has reached one crore annual turnover in a year. The question in your mind will be how the turnover of one crore rupees was achieved.
Significantly, when women formed a company, they started connecting tribal families with it. He entrusted these families with the responsibility of bringing Sitaphal from the forest. Then the women’s company started buying Sitaphal and selling it to national level companies. This Sitaphal is used to make ice cream. Because of this, the business of the company started. Now all the ice cream companies are buying Sitaphal directly from the tribal women’s company. This is the reason why the company was able to do a turnover of crores of rupees in such a short time.
Thousands of unemployed women got employment
Sanjibai, who runs the company, says that the Sitaphal pulp processing unit has been opened for Rs 21.48 lakh. This unit is operated only through women in Nana. The government is also helping. The seed capital revolving fund is also being received from the government. The pulp of 60 to 70 quintal Sitaphal is extracted here daily. 60 women are getting employment every day at a total of eight collection centers. Working women are getting wages of 150 rupees per day. Poverty in the area is also being removed and women empowerment is also being encouraged due to women getting work.
Many times higher prices started
Tribal women say that “Earlier, when selling Sitaphal in the basket, we used to get eight to ten rupees per kilogram in the season, but now when the processing unit is set up, the ice cream companies are paying up to Rs 160 per kg.” This year 10 tons of pulp is set to sell in the national market. Whose turnover will be beyond one crore? He said that in the last two years the company has sold 10 tonnes of pulp and now if the average price of pulp in the market is Rs 150, then this turnover is expected to reach 30 million.
Where is Sitaphal used?
Fruit cream is also prepared from Sitaphal. According to one figure, an average of two and a half tonnes of Sitaphal pulp is produced in Pali area of Rajasthan. From here, Sitaphal is supplied to all the major ice cream companies of the country. Aboriginal women have started extracting Sitaphal now. The company of tribal women is buying this pulp at expensive prices from them. Tribal women who run the company say that we used to see Sitaphal ruined since childhood since then I thought that it is such a good fruit that something can be done. Then an NGO got help and we started working by forming a group. Gradually our business continued to grow. Seeing us making profits, other women also joined our caravan. And today our company has reached this stage.
