All across the country, home-made food businesses have increased in numbers in the last few years. These businesses have empowered a lot of women by helping them become financially independent. While it is impossible to list them all, we appreciate them tremendously for their courage, grit and hard work. Today, we are listing three food providers that deliver all the Diwali essentials in Mumbai. These micro-businesses are all set up from home.

Vora Farsan for delicious Gujarati Savouries

Vora Farsan was born very recently during the COVID-19 lockdown. The Ghatkopar based Vora family came up with the business idea when they realized that their sources of income had all stopped during the lockdown. Lalit Vora, who had 25 years of experience of working in Farsan business came up with the idea of making and selling Farsan from home.
Gathering the seed capital from his daughter and a few friends, Vora with support of his wife and daughters started preparing Farsan on order. His daughters share the menu of Vora Farsan to their contacts on Whatsapp helping him get more orders.
