M/S Govinda Creations is into manufacturing and processing of hosiery items. Operating from North Yashwantganj, Indore, the unit is run by Smt. Sudha Kothari.
Smt. Kothari learnt of the Stand-Up India Scheme from newspaper and decided to avail it to fulfil a burning desire to start a business.
She approached the local Central Bank and enquired about all the formalities. Indore is a hub of business in the Malwa region and there is a lot of potential for a business specialising in ready made garments.
Smt. Kothari had a sound business plan and the experience that she and her husband possessed, gave the bank the confidence that they will run a successful enterprise. With a term loan and also a credit facility for working capital, Sudha was ready to take the plunge.
The early success has given Sudha the confidence to expand her business and provide facilities like imposing of stickers and labels on the garments and also doing ‘job work’ of printing on the hosiery clothes. The present staff strength of four is sure to expand in the coming months, thereby, providing employment to people of the region. And that seems to give Smt. Kothari a high, as she says, ‘I am not running my establishment for income but for giving employment, and that makes me very happy.’
