Tea-cart owner, Bengaluru| Udhyam Vyapaar
A story of resilience My husband has been my backbone throughout my entrepreneurial journey as a tea cart business owner. I am now 52 years and started this venture fifteen years ago with very humble offerings like tea and packaged snacks. I was struggling to secure finances to be able to scale my business to the next stage. Unorganized lenders charge a high rate of interest, and it was a long wait before I could finally access capital with Udhyam Vyapaar’s help I utilized these funds to add new products and improve the infrastructure required to stock these products. With time, I transitioned to digital payments to meet customer demand, a move that was not easy, given I was a first-mover among my peers. Despite several health issues, I have stayed focused and have not given up. I now want to expand my business and add two more shops, and nothing will stand in my way!
