Let There Be Light!

Payal TyagiIndividualistic and creative-at-heart, Payal Tyagi never quite belonged in the corporate world. It was either her entrepreneurial parents or just her inner voice that led her to start something of her own.  She strongly believes that this was not a decision but life’s master plan.

Candle-making was a hobby Payal had picked up in her teenage. By the time she was eighteen, she sold her own candles to a lot of interior designers. But then life happened and before she knew it, she was pursuing an MBA and then working up the corporate ladder. But as time passed, she realized that candle-making was her true calling. Pursuing this old hobby into making it big was her new dream, one she knew that she just had to fulfill. After a lot of research, thought process, trial and error Indie Eco Candles was founded

Even before Indie Eco existed, Payal knew, she had to reach out to people in monetary need. Charity would have sufficed for a few, but Payal’s plans were a little different. She wanted to empower, instead of just help. She saw that a lot of women are forced to work in hazardous areas and yet would barely make enough to help feed their families. After getting in touch with a local NGO, she employed and trained women from underprivileged backgrounds. Payal started Indie Eco with a team of just two women. Today her team has rapidly grown, making Indie Eco one of the best handcrafted luxury candles in the country. Payal makes sure to provide her staff with safe and respectable working hours, decent pay and essential mentoring for their children.  Her sincere involvement in her employees’ lives today has materialized in a group of independent women bringing a positive change for themselves as well as for their families.
