Shashikala Flowers & Vegetables, Seeghaihalli Village, Bengaluru

To put her daughters through school and meet family expenditure, Shashikala sells flowers and vegetables in her local area. She buys from Hoskote market and sells flowers near a temple during temple timings. Later, she sells vegetables carrying on the head in a plastic bucket, going from house to house in her local community.

Shashikala applied for help from PURE India Trust, who helped her procure a pushcart to sell the vegetables and flowers. Her daily income has now increased two-fold to INR 600-800.

Previously, Shashikala was able to carry only a few vegetables on her head. Now, empowered with a mobile pushcart, she can move around with more vegetables and sell in her local areas and nearby communities, apartments, and societies.

Shashikala is now confident that she can manage her family expenses and afford education for her daughters.
