Rani Mandal is 65 years old. She is married and has a son who works as a cook with a restaurant in UAE ,however he left home deserting his 85 years old Father and Mother. She now sells Tea, Biscuits and Groceries from her small Shop in the village of Baliura, Krishnanagar(West Bengal, India) to survive.

Rani is a very hardworking woman and has a compassionate & caring personality. Everyday she wakes up at 4 AM to open her shop to sell Tea and Biscuits to villagers and locals throughout the day. She finally close the shop late at 10 PM.

How Your Contribution Will Help Her:
With your help, Rani will be able to renovate her shop which has almost collapsed from heavy torrential rain. The shop's floor also needs to be cemented as there are rats that dig in to the shop from the adjacent paddy fields. Any additional funds left will also help her buy more groceries to sell. She has a steady line of local customers and her sales will soar with more items to sale. This renovation will help keep out the rats and then she could also sell rice, flour, sugar and other items.

Her shop is located in a good area close to a highway and her primary customers are locals. She sells tea and snacks in an open-air temporary sitting arrangements adjacent to her house.

She has been working hard to provide for her family and to bear the medical expenses of her husband and herself while also arranging food for themselves.

Your support and contribution will help Rani continue having a fixed source of Income that is required to take care of her and her family.

Dear Supporters,

The  first Trial and Test phase as rolled out with small quantity of groceries  to check the response to sales of groceries from Rani's shop, has provided quite a few helpful insights. The major sales-triggering items have been the cooking oil,spices,salt and daily consumables like bread,flour,candies,milk powder,pulses & cereals  ...accordingly we have spoken to the whole seller to deliver these items in greater quantity since the last time. Accordingly we would keep increasing the order quantity to prevent over-stocking and disposal of groceries in their most fresh state.
We thank you for your support.
