Shashi is 24 years old, and comes from a family of farmers in Bhageshpura, a small village 30 kms from Hassan. Farming wasn’t a sustainable career option due to fragmented land holdings & water scarcity. While onboarding in Hassan, Shashi learnt about the 1Bridge Task App to provide assisted commerce in his village – including running awareness campaigns, sales origination and door-step delivery. He now sponsors his wife’s university education.
While last mile deliveries occupy a major chunk of his morning, Shashi spend time with consumers in his village helping them with online shopping, mobile recharges and dispensing cash. He spends some time in the afternoon to work in the fields and tutors school kids. The students dote on Shashi for his patience while teaching mathematics. Shashi has made a huge impact by taking up an entrepreneurial role which enables communication of his world to the outside, while providing access, choice & convenience to his community.
