Khumbongmayum Dhanachandra Singh, a college dropout, has become a successful entrepreneur in Manipur.
Hailing from Thangmeiband Maisnam Leikai in Manipur, he runs a manufacturing unit and generates jobs for others.
Singh, who started manufacturing bags after he failed to get a job, launched ‘Romi Industries’ in 1996 and never looked back.
After years of hard work, Singh’s business has reached to this success. Presently, he has a staff of 30 people with latest stitching machines. He manufactures school bags, air bags, camera bags, rain coats, jackets, track suits, laptop bags and many other items.
“I have earned experience as I was untrained during the time of joining. I now make bags, rain coats and other items. I never used stitching machine earlier. After joining here I have learnt many things,” said Thoiba, a staff.
“I’m happy that I get the job here because I have nothing to do at home. If I stay at home it was wastage of time. I am happy to work here,” added another staff Anita.
