M/s. Khushi Industries

My name is Abida Begum, and I am the owner of M/s. Khushi Industries. I am 33 years old. Spices are the focus of my company. In my family, I am the first female entrepreneur. My father and grandfather encouraged me to start a firm when I completed my master's degree in business administration. Throughout my journey, I had numerous challenges in maintaining my business.In the beginning, I had several obstacles to overcome, such as approvals and bank loans, marketing, and money recovery, to name a few. The difficulties multiplied throughout the pandemic. I'm aware of the risks of business, but I get to learn something new every day, which excites me. I struggle with working capital, and APSFC has helped and encouraged me along the way, giving me a chance to prove myself.In the next five years, I plan to have a turnover of at least 2 crores, and my mantra for success is Plan - Focus - Hard Work. Paying salary makes me so pleased and satisfied. I intend to pay at least 200 people in the future. All of my spices will be exported to the global market, according to my plans.
