I’m Rajesh Kumar Selvaraju from Tamil Nadu, India. I’ve been working as a Software Engineer in Information Technology for a living and passionately aspiring to be a successful Businessman. The western civilization has created a deep impact in me, not only for its lifestyle, but for various other reasons such as celebrating life and creating opportunities for millions across the globe. One thing I’ve admired always is the quality of healthcare that is being offered for the people of developed countries and always wish that I can contribute something from my end, so that the underprivileged too get at least a fraction of it, making our earth a more wonderful place to live in.
Throughout my life, I’ve been inspired and fascinated by the way people start as a entrepreneur and build their business empire with their innovative ideas, emerged into a trendsetter, to be a cause for change in the lives of thousands of fellow people. Money is certainly a most important factor in life because, it allows us to pursue the projects we’re most passionate about, while having a greater positive impact on the world. And I discovered that the current 9-5 desk job may be self sufficient financially but I’m compromising all my dreams and passion, doing total injustice to myself.
By and large, millions of people around the world dream of being a successful entrepreneur, but very few achieve it. It is not because of a lack of intelligence or bad luck, but it is their mindset that blocks them from the road ahead. I wholeheartedly believe that we can accomplish anything we can envision. But if I think small, then I’ll accomplish small. Thinking big opens us up to a world of infinite possibilities. So, I developed a habit of thinking big and committed to becoming an entrepreneur one day of my life, so that I can afford to give the best education, healthcare and lifestyle, not only to my own family but to another family called employees.
After taking a decision of getting into entrepreneurship, I decided that whatever I intend to do, it should be doing good to the health of the people, increase their lifespan and should not create any adverse effect on our mother earth. At least by doing this, I can return back something to where I came from. Hence, I decided to venture into a production and manufacturing unit to produce herbal products made from Moringa oleifera (commonly known as Moringa), Murraya koenigii (commonly known as Curry Leaves) and Azadirachta indica (commonly known as Mountain Neem), the divine herbs indigenous to the Indian subcontinent, which have been used for centuries in India by traditional medical practice for better health. They are found in abundance, have rich nutrient profile with all vitamins and minerals, rich in anti-oxidants, protect against arsenic toxity, helps in improving fertility and can prevent deadly diseases such as Cancer.
I have all the plans carefully and properly set up for establishing the farm, manufacturing unit, licensing, certifications, export formalities and legal procedures. I’ve been taking some trainings on related fields and acquiring new skills required for the business to ensure seamless start and smooth operation. For financial assistance, I approached many banks and investors. All efforts of fundraising were turned down for lack of collateral security and narrow scope of profit. At this point, I started to get demotivated since I’ve already exhausted all my savings in this, and I have to start right from scratch besides supporting my family.
Recently, I read somewhere – If you want to sculpt your life, go in search of the tool, it won’t come to you on its own. Only then, I decided to ask, to ask generous people who have the ability to help, who have a kind heart to help, who can monetarily motivate a struggling fellow human, who can extend a helping hand when someone is sinking without any expectation.
Other than the investment already made, I still need seed funding to be invested in the farm for procurement of equipments and to set up other infrastructure. Though the project value is over $1,000,000, honestly, I have no idea how much to ask you for. I humbly request you to please help me with the investment required. I would really appreciate whatever fund is being considered worth helping me to support my venture. I’m happy for you that God has blessed you with all success and if you help me to realize my passion and idea, he will certainly be more happy for giving back. I sincerely hope that you will help me with the required financial assistance, and by helping me in the right time, you’re making a big change in my life and in many lives through me in future.
It’s a honor knowing about you and you will always remain as one of my inspirations to attain my goal and success in life. Thanks much for the time.
