The story of a woman entrepreneur, who was trying to supplement her family income.
One day in 2017, browsing the GeM site, she noticed that the Prime Minister's Office was interested in purchasing a few thermoflasks, which she could supply. She responded, and soon PMO confirmed the order.
Technology had empowered Arulmozhi Saravanan, a small entrepreneur from Madurai, to notice a requirement that the Prime Minister's Office had, match it against what she could supply, and complete the sale.
Thereafter, by supplying products to various offices, her business grew.
She once used firewood for cooking. Now she uses a gas cylinder.
The turnover of her enterprise has crossed one crore rupees in the current FY year.
And it all started with an order of 234 rupees on GeM !
She learnt that the PM would be visiting Madurai. She met him today.
For her, GeM is now not just a means to a business. She describes it as a service to the nation.
From Mudra, to GeM to GST - Arulmozhi is just one illustration of how Government's reforms are working on the ground, to ease the lives of people. #NamoInThrissur
