Parameswari had been operating her insurance and real estate business from her own home for nearly two decades. With one woman employee on her team, she managed to generate a monthly income of approximately ₹80,000 from her part-time ventures and an additional ₹10,000 from tax advisory services. Her reputation as a self-employed insurance agent for esteemed companies spoke volumes of her expertise and commitment.

Reflecting on her journey, Parameswari shared, “I’ve built an ever-growing clientele who place their trust in me. Witnessing the positive impact I make and providing the best solutions to them is truly fulfilling. Their support fuels my determination to soar higher.

Once her daughter was married, Parameswari found herself with time on her hands, even though she already had an established business. Determined to utilise her potential to the fullest and with support from her husband who was employed as a mechanical engineer, she set her sights on expanding her business. The dream of establishing a dedicated office space and hiring two additional employees to better serve her growing clientele had always been playing on her mind. However, the persistent chains of financial constraints prevented her dreams from taking flight.
