This is us
Being a widow, I run my household on my own with my job here.
Since my family has traditionally made castor oil for years, I take care of it at Grassroots.
I have seen this place grow from its very first days. Now the oil we make reaches a thousand families every month.
I am the very first employee at Grassroots. Now, I am the team leader.
I oversee production, assign day-to-day work regarding oil extraction and production. I also take care of packaging.
Before, I used to cook mid-day meals for a local school. Now I have the joy of going home early and cooking for my family.
I am a widow and the only earning member of my family.
I stay close by and make the castor oil in your hands along with Chenamma.
I used to work at a garment industry before. The commute itself used to take hours of my time and I rarely went home early.
Being able to work closer to home has freed up a lot of time. There is nothing better than going home by evening, whipping up a warm dinner for my family.
A foodie by heart and a driver by profession, I make sure all your oils are at your door in Mandya, Mysore and Bangalore.
I drive around all day as part of my job and sometimes, stop for a good Pani Puri on the way back home.
My wife and I both work here. I love that we can have lunch together at work too!
I extract oil and in my free time, I like riding autos. As a kid, I always liked big vehicles and now feel content whenever I ride them.
I used to work in an industry in Nanjangud before I lost my job when COVID hit. Grassroots gave me a job and I bounced back.
I handle oil extraction all day and once work is done, I play sports. It gives me the energy to keep going in life.
I love animals. I take care of all the cows, hens, dogs, and cats of Grassroots.
I also love working in the agricultural field. I enjoy going to bed after a long day, knowing my animals will be waiting for me tomorrow.
