Earlier this month, Amazon India signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Karnataka State Rural Livelihood Promotion Society (KSRLPS) to support the growth of women entrepreneurs.
Amazon India would launch Sanjeevini-KSRLPS in its marketplace and extend benefits of the ‘Saheli’ programme to train and empower thousands of women entrepreneurs to come online and access a wider market for their products, the company said in a press release.
This association would help bring in regional selection and unique products from categories like grocery, home and fashion accessories made by over 30,000 women entrepreneurs and self-help groups (SHGs) associated with Sanjeevini-KSRLPS online and make them available to millions of Amazon customers across the country, the release said.
