WELCOME

MESSAGE It seems the journey has just begun. Looking back our team never ceases to wonder that at Swayamsiddha, we've been living our dream for 16 long years. What began as a small-time yahoo group transformed itself into a full-fledged organization, working to achieve its goals. The world has changed fast, the competition in business world has grown nerve wrecking. Sustaining a micro level business enterprise run by a women entrepreneur with her limited skill set, finances has become next to impossible in these changed times.

Bhushan Paithankar Managing Trustee

Keeping these changed dynamics in mind, Swayamsiddha Foundation adapted itself to changing times and brought a sense of awareness amongst its members, who are mostly prospective and existing businesswomen, the need to change, need to adapt to modern business techniques. We taught them modern business tools, digital tools, assisted them in creating their brand and facilitated their growth by providing them with realtime business intelligence. We thank you all for aiding us in our journey. I remain. Yours sincerely, Bhushan Bhagwan Paithankar

OUR UNIQUE INITIATIVES MARKETING INITIATIVES It was observed that majority of Women Members of Swayamsiddha Foundation, Mumbai are engaged either in manufacture or trading of Food items or Garment and related products. Due to limited budget they found it difficult to sell their products to wider clientele. To address this issue Swayamsiddha Foundation brought these members together on one platform and created an Online Platform and Portal for Garment Sellers titled "Swayam Stores" and trained the women to upload their products on the Portal. Similar activity was done for women in Food Segment. A Portal "The Food Station was developed and an online platform was created for our members.
