“I have noticed that handling a business is perhaps more difficult for a woman. As, very often, families pull them down in their journeys.”, mentions a passionate Nandini.
Embracing life in the unknown is harder said than done and Nandini Kishan is one of the few who have conquered a newer terrain. Professionally, a Physiotherapist, her job was strenuous and as a new mom, she wished to spend more time with her child. And thus began her stint as an entrepreneur with Oriflame. When she chose the road less travelled, Nandini was prepared to overcome the hurdles and so she did. Today, she is living the life she desired all because of her will and heart. Besides, Nandini is on a mission to encourage and empower women to “stand up and be financially independent for themselves”.
