Sub sector analysis

It was very good to listen to the presentations of fellows on their sub sector analysis study and on the logic of a organization to intervene in the project area, according to fellows after this they came to know how does the organization work with internal and external environment and how does it works on the portfolio of the people with whom they plan to work, how they plan strategically to use the internal and external resource.The teams which did study on products (sub sector analysis) was very interesting. They were able to explain the channels through which product enters the market and the players who enters the market with their own value additions to the existing product. What is their profit range, how much the person is getting who is really involved in the production process. and how the wholesalers are able to make more money easily out of that etc..
If they want to start and enterprise or a organization where they find their intervene point. Really the field experience they shared was enough to explain their learnings.

Guest Speaker : Ramakrishna

Yesturday it was our

Opportunity as a test of Learning


Here DFP planned to celebrate the success of fellows in 5K. by giving a small trip to Sirsi. This included an opportunity for some initiators who were very eager to jump and be a responsible member in a committee which supposed to work on task and had some responsibilities. From organizing the trip, fixing the place, food responsibility, security of fellows, finance, everything was done by fellows. after the trip they were able to explain the learnings of respective committee. What better they can do if they do the same thing again what are all correction they are willing to do.
As a part of trip they visited the Charaka (Desi) they saw how the process goes and how the women co-operative society is managing it. The way they organization is being run by them was very impressive for fellows. Even the small things are given equal importance to maintain process properly. How the technology has been included in to the production process etc.. Now the fellows are much eager to take responsibilities for Eco tourism.

5K Presentation

Woo!! It was great to see fellows talking about the investment and business terminologies. Till now they acted as a buyer. but they understood that as a seller how it is difficult to convince customers. They explained how they felt when people rejected to see even their product, bargaining with women is the biggest challenging thing for all of them. Their expression was the merrier to show their experience. They have Broke the record of senior fellows by earning around 37.000/- rupees in 7 days by investing 95.000/- rupees. They say life long they will remember the experience and now they are able to find the value and real price of the things or product.
