District admin awaits State Govt’s approval for rural women’s marketing skill training

 

To make rural women self sufficient in promoting and marketing their business, the Dehradun district administration has decided to provide them marketing skill training.

 

In the last few years, the administration has provided various kinds of skill development training to hundreds of women associated with various Self Help Groups (SHGs) to make them financially independent. According to the officials, various rural women of SHGs have been trained in many skills like mushroom production, baking, tailoring, and making LED light strings and light bulbs.

 

Most of the time, the district administration provides platforms for such women to exhibit their products. However, now the officials want these rural women to be capable of marketing and selling their products in open markets among the other existing private businesses.

 

According to her, the reach of the products prepared by these women will not extend beyond the government departments and associated events if these women will fail to market their products. “This training will help them to get more exposure in the open market so that they can get the confidence to market and promote their own products.
