One day, my mother bought some tasty and healthy homemade puffed rice from her domestic helper, who usually made it only for herself. Puffed rice is a very common snack where I live, and it is churned out in bulk at factories where at times it is adulterated with unhealthy stuff.
I happened to ask my office colleagues if they would like to order this item. The benefit was twofold – it was a healthy snack, and it also financially supported the domestic helper. My first order was for 21kgs of the snack, and when I placed it with the helper, she was utterly surprised. Initially, she priced it so low that she wasn’t left with any profit margin. I compensated her for her loss and encouraged her to take this up as a business opportunity. She was all smiles. ?
Sometimes a small push can encourage a big leap.
