Printer Ajivika Yojna
Enabling access to low-cost printing facilities in rural India
As a first business in a box model created by FREND, the Printer Ajivika Yojna helps the digitally skilled women in Rural India to earn a livelihood by providing low cost printing services within their villages.
The Printer Ajivika Yojna was piloted initially in Andhra Pradesh. By enabling access to low-cost printing facilities in rural areas, it has created a group of rural women entrepreneurs. Through this program, local communities now have access to printing facilities in their areas. There are currently over 1200 Internet Saathis earning a livelihood through this model.
