Where did it all start
One VLE Mr. Kolli Prasad in Vizianagaram, Andhra Pradesh, an engineer & entrepreneur with a zeal to do something for his village did a survey in his area to find out what did the people want the most to be delivered to their houses. Surprisingly, for him, the animal feed was the most opted out answer. Animal feed was not available in any of the e-commerce stores.
As he has trained a lot of his villagers on digital literacy, people started using it to order online for animal feed for their animals. Kolli Prasad now developed a self-sufficient model for his village for storing, delivering animal feed. Now he is venturing into MeeSantha, an online grocery store. He also developed an app from MiGrocer for the same. He has a team of 8 to manage MeeSantha.
This experience of CSC Andhra Pradesh has triggered the idea of online delivery stores called CSC Grameen eStores in the times of COVID-19 to extend it to all over India.
