With support from NTPC Ramagundam, a group of six women has set up a pickle shop

It was a dream come true for the women of Annapurna colony of Ramagundam coal belt area.

They were able to become entrepreneurs and produce homemade food and market them in the area thanks to the efforts of the NTPC.

As part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR), the NTPC Ramagundam is providing training in self-employment trades to women to empower them.

Accordingly, the NTPC, with the support of Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI), Hyderabad, imparted special training on food processing and preservation.

After undergoing training, six women opened their own shop on Sunday and named it ‘Annapurna home food and pickles’.

The women prepared the pickles and packed it in bottles to put it on sale.

Local corporator K. Sumara and NTPC CSR officials encouraged the women group members to maintain quality and increase the marketing for better sales.
