Ironing nanopreneur | Udhyam Vyapaar

Venkatesh, a migrant from Tamil Nadu, now calls Bengaluru his home. He has had an ironing cart in Bengaluru for the past 20 years. Prior to starting the ironing business, he was employed in a garment manufacturing unit. He started his own business to be able to earn more and also because he always wanted to make his own decisions. He has been an early adopter of the LPG iron-box courtesy the Istri Project by Udhyam Vyapaar. Seeing the benefits first hand, the increase in productivity & efficiency, he went on to became an advocate for LPG ironing boxes and started promoting the same in his community. He has supported many other ironing vendors through their conversion from coal-based ironing to LPG ironing boxes. Venkatesh’s story is one of persistence. He has kept at it through ups and downs, and built up a strong set of regular clientele. His hard work and determination have motivated his son to also join the ironing business with him.
