Swadeshi Farms –
When Preet was in second year of PGDM, due to Covid19 he have to come back home and lockdown happen. Lockdown give him a time to think about business ideas and Covid19 make him understand importance of strong immunity. This is how the idea stuck- How we can make our immunity strong? Simple answer by consuming more pure and herbal products in daily routine. So he got the basic to have something which everyone can use in their daily life. This Idea is something which was already in his nerves or was already inherited as his Grandfather was a Ayurvedic Doctor by himself used to make medicine. Then he started working on plans about the products which can easily be made and can have an impact on health directly or indirectly. Started with the products which he consumed in his house made by Ayurveda ideology by his grandmother and eatables which are made by his mother. After that he make a group of 4-5 women to train them by help of his mother and grandmother. This is the way brand – Swadeshi Farms started.
Funding – on starting Preet Jain borrowed from his mother but later he made a plan in such a way that he raise fund from his customers only.
“From my school day’s I have got several ideas but never work upon them, because I always thought it’s not the right time, lack of fund and lack of knowledge. But this time I just thought and after that took the step. I don’t waste my time in over thinking and took the very first step and I think this is the most important thing which has helped me”.
