A 65-Year-Old Finds an Alternate Source of Income

65-year-old Siddagangamma works as a helper at the village Aanganwadi in Bailapura, Bangalore rural. After attending the Buzz training delivered by Bhavith, Siddagangamma went home was caught up in thoughts. She was absolutely driven by the thought that she should do something about her financial situation. After weighing various options, she decided she will go to the vegetable mandi in the nearby town and get leafy vegetables to sell in her village. Leafy vegetables are extremely popular in rural Karnataka and are consumed almost on a daily basis by villagers. Siddagangamma definitely seems to have a sense of the needs of the market!

She took a small loan of Rs 1000 and bought her first set of leafy vegetables and found herself a place in the village market. Every evening, after finishing her work at the Aaganwadi, Siddagangamma, heads to her second job as a vegetable seller. She is using the tips that she picked up from the training on how to record her income and her expenditure. Within just a couple of months, she has started earning profits from her vegetable business and has started saving money.

The inspiration that she took from the training became a determination to create an additional source of income and improve her financial situation. All she needed was a small nudge. And remember, she did this at the age of 65!
