With Flipkart Samarth, Punjab’s women artisans hope for a post-pandemic business revival

The world had shifted online, but these women artisans had not.’ When the pandemic led to a near-complete halt in sales and incomes of Punjab’s women artisans, the self-help groups they belonged to turned to e-commerce. With training, multiple benefits, and an introduction to the world of online business, the women are optimistic that their handmade and original designs will receive the recognition they deserve and lead to better lives and days ahead.

How Flipkart’s Project EVA empowers women Wishmasters

For some customers in Bengaluru who shopped on Flipkart in 2016, opening the door to receive their deliveries became an experience to remember. In an innovative move that brought gender equality, women’s empowerment and equal opportunity to the doorstep, these customers discovered that their orders were delivered by a woman Wishmaster (delivery executive). A confident woman dressed in a t-shirt and trousers handed over their wishes, with a smile and a sparkle in her eye. This is the story of Flipkart’s Project EVA, an innovation that aims to empower women in the supply chain industry by proving that no workplace and no job description is an all-male bastion.
