Name of MEC: Jaya Mol
Smt. JayaMol who was selected as a Micro Enterprise Consultant in June, 2016, had undergone various levels of training till April 2017. On the basis of the training, she began to approach prospective business entrepreneurs and supported two enterprises in January, 2017 while she was still undergoing training.
Initially she would approach the CDS and through it go to the ADS and would further move over to NHG from where she would find out those who are interested to become an entrepreneur. She would apprise them of the business potential and persuade them to start an enterprise. After identifying the potential persons, she would also provide help for finding space for starting the business, license, machinery, raw materials, marketing strategy etc. Smt. Jayamol would also guide them for improving business, expanding sales and marketing.
As part of the MEC group supporting Vadavucode block, her assigned area of operation is AikaranadPanchyat, she has travelled the length and breadth of the Panchayat and met hundreds of villagers explaining to them the avenues and opportunities open to them under this scheme. Special emphasis is being given to persuade people belonging to financially backward families.
For almost one year, she has been creating awareness about SVEP in the Panchayat, she has been able to mobilize public opinion in favor of helping villagers to stand on their own by starting new business initiatives. She has already helped the formation of 20 enterprises and assisted in various stages of their growth in Aikaranad.These enterprises include bakery, tailoring service, vegetable shop, vehicle number plate service, soap making, and pickle making. All these units are performing excellently with good business and turnover yielding reasonably good return for the entrepreneurs. Some of them have already started expansion/diversification projects.
Smt. Jayamol feels quite satisfied as having done her humble part well in helping a number of persons to start new businesses of their own to earn a livelihood and enabling them to have a successful family life. Since starting this new mission as Micro Enterprise Consultant under SVEP, Smt. Jayamol has undergone tremendous change to the effect that now she can successfully manage a large group of persons by addressing them in a public forum, telling them about the scheme and persuading them to start new business units. She has grown into a highly motivating trainer for the new entrepreneurs. While helping a good number of persons to start new business units and thereby achieve financial strength, Smt. Jayamol is getting small returns by way of commission for the support she provides for businesses.
