SME firms in rural India have sufficient potential to grow with the right entrepreneurship and consulting. This is evident from the steady growth of the number of jobs at Women on Wings clients: with over 20,000 to 81,050 (May 2013). Fabric Plus and especially Jharcraft are the fastest growing clients of Women on Wings. Of the new jobs created is 75 percent in realing silkworms and 25 percent in weaving.
Ronald van het Hof, Managing Director India: “We support a number of companies with extensive knowledge in the areas of management, finance, organization and marketing. Oriented knowledge that makes the difference in the development of potential in their market. More focus on their customers and the market creates a sustainable growth in the company which ultimately creates more jobs for women in rural India.”
Ellen Tacoma, co-founder Women on Wings: “With the opening of our Indian office we can respond even more quickly to the needs of our clients. The target for 2013, to grow to 100,000 jobs for women in rural India, seems very realistic.”
