“I came to Hyderabad 10 years ago, in search of work. Luckily, a kind gentleman offered me a job in his tea shop. That certainly helped me to sustain during the difficult times.
I worked under him for over three years and that’s how I was able to set up my own soda business.
It’s not easy to stay away from family for so many years but I am doing it to take the responsibility of my siblings education
My father is a farm worker in Sangareddy district. I decided to work in another city after my class 10 and my parents did not object either.
Talking about my business, it’s going a bit slow nowadays because of the winter season. However, the rates of lemon are skyrocketing everyday. Currently, it’s Rs. 2700 per bag
Well, talking about the business, I had suffered losses earlier too, but that didn’t deter me from moving forward. The same applies now. These are testing times for us, the small scale vendors. Every day is a new lesson and I am staying hopeful to get going. My dream is to start a fast food and juice centre here.
Hopefully, one day, I wish to expand my business which could eventually help a few people like me to provide employment.”
