Kapurthala, October 15

To give an impetus to women entrepreneurs through Self Help Groups (SHGs) and ensure proper marketing, a ‘Bebian Di Dukan’ (women’s shop) has been started here on Thursday.

The things prepared by women or SHGs would be sold out here and special attention would be paid to the quality of product.

DC Deepti Uppal inaugurated the shop near the BDPO office and became the first customer after she purchased desi ghee and biscuits from the shop. She also enjoyed delicious cheese chat and others products.

The DC said the district had 188 SHGs and out of the 1,992 members, 1,400 are women, who not only prepare domestic items, but also work for stitching suits. She said this shop would empower women economically as this would provide a better marketing platform to them in the city.

Harpreet Kaur, Women Development Officer, who is the key person behind this shop, said green vegetables grown in the nutri kitchen garden would also be sold. She said these products would be organic and healthy. — TNS
