A few weeks back, The Ken wrote about Kudumbashree. An organisation that started 20 years ago with the aim of mobilising women and making them financially independent. One part of their programme works with small units of around five women each—Micro-enterprise (ME) units. These women produce handmade, homemade products, which they then sell door-to-door, in bazaars and at exhibitions. And now, Kudumbashree wants to sell online, join the world of e-commerce by selling on kudumbashreebazaar.com.

While a notable effort, I thought The Ken’s piece was incomplete.
