But then it became necessary to do a job to continue my studies and support the family. He then started working as a receptionist in a private hospital in Hisar in his first year of graduation. He remained in this job for two and a half years, in addition to continuing his studies. Then, when he enrolled in the MBA, the long shifts at the hospital started getting in the way of studies.

It was easier for Suman to get her business listed on Meesho. As the orders increased, it became difficult for Suman to manage everything on his own. So he thought of forming his own team. Seeing Suman working, some young people around expressed their desire to join him and now he has a team of about 10 people. When Suman started the business, he used to get 4-5 orders a day. Today this figure has reached 1000 daily orders.
She also suffered the pain of her son’s death and miscarriage

Inspiration for others…
Suman says that when she was not married and was looking for a job, people said that this would make her father rich. His words were positive, less encouraging and more in the form of teasing. After that, when he got married and came to his in-laws’ house, there too in the eyes of some, he had to do his job. Suman worked for 6 consecutive years even after marriage and meanwhile people had understood that no one could dissuade Suman from her decision. Then when he started his own business, everyone’s reaction was he’s going to do it. Suman explains that her husband was always by her side in this whole story and that is why she is standing. Seeing it today, other people in Hisar also get inspired and start their own work. Not only this, people also call it from outside Hisar.
