Opening a vegetable shop as a Self Employee (Purchasing Vegetables and inaugural of the shop auspiciously) – Day 02
In the early morning We bought vegetables and fruits for the from the Medawachchiya market. We couldn’t buy in bulk and If we tried buy in bulk then for that we have to go another 50 km towards Vavuniya. It also has to go by 2-3 am . So we bought from Medawachchiya town at the average retail price. Anyway in any case those who run shop get 100% profit. When these vegetables and fruits are sold, they can continue to buy at wholesale prices from a vegetable vendor or from Vavuniya market.
For shop we bought vegetables, fruits, leaves, Watermelons, Corn, and and king coconut .
After we buy everything and when came to the place where the shop located they have prepared a traditional Sri Lankan Milk Rice.
We stored vegetables and fruits properly and beautifully in the shop and worshiping the Lord Buddha and receiving blessings according to our Buddhist religious customs and started the affairs of the shop.
The first transaction of the Shop was made by our Anuradhapura District coordinator of SamajaSathkara Team Mr. Sisira Senaratne. The villagers also came to buy vegetables and fruits.
We all had tears in our eyes when we saw the beauty of the shop and everyone in that family thanked everyone who supported.
We advised them to open a bank account at the nearest post office and deposit a portion from the Day income as a saving for their Children future.
At the end after all with everyone’s blessings we left for the next project.
We were able to use your contributions to help this family with a huge family burden to stand by their own efforts. Our respectful thanks for that.
