She adds, “I decided to build a new business line for my family business which is involved in trading of dry fruits. I am instrumental in building the brand ‘Kharawala Products’ and market products to cater to the FMCG sector.”

Rinki Chandawalla is a Chartered Accountant and businesswoman. For the last three years, she has been leading the corporate sales and marketing division of the organization. She leads a team of 10 people. “We have been able to increase revenue for the organization by focusing on modern trade and corporate customers.”

Sharing that her NSRCEL experience has had an immense impact on her and her business, Rinki says, “NSRCEL brought 135 women entrepreneurs on one platform where they discussed problems, got solutions, struck collaborations and made friends. The course gave me a perspective on investor funding. Ours is a bootstrapped company, and I strongly feel that we need to take funding to stay ahead of competitors. The NSRCEL program taught us that preparation and planning are essential before one can consider the same.”
“We also learnt about the right techniques and methods of advertising as well as marketing. This course gave me not just ideas, but taught me the way to spend my resources optimally and get the best results from marketing and advertisement strategies. It also gave me the perspective that with limited resources, it is better to focus and master one area before going to another.”
