#MakeupForDifference – Encourage Geetaben today!

From a regular homemaker in Gujarat to an entrepreneur, Geetaben is a woman of substance. Read about how she is making a difference by providing employment opportunities to rural women.


Geetaben was like any other homemaker from Gujarat but there was something that set her a class apart – a special skill. She could cook the tastiest ‘namkeens’ at home. Having received tremendous compliments from people at home and around the neighbourhood, she realized something – there was an opportunity. And just like that she decided to sell her much-raved about namkeens in and around her area.

With an aim to sell her namkeens to as many people as possible, she started preparing them in larger quantities and sold them to her acquaintances in the area. It turned out to be a big hit – which was no surprise. This was when the entrepreneur inside her saw the light and being as ambitious as she is, she decided to take it to the next level. Her namkeens now sell all over the district. She has managed to train people from the slums near her home.  She employs over 25 people from there and they have a livelihood thanks to her. Geetaben has become a respected figure in the area. She dreams that her namkeens business will grow to great heights, allowing her to train even more under-privileged women and provide them with employment opportunities

To us, Geetaben is an inspiration. We wish her all the best for her venture. If you like her story and want to help support her dream, do send her an encouraging message by CLICKING HERE. For every message received a donation of Rs.50/- will be made to help support her cause.
