Hi friends. I am Rajni Rao, a housewife from Mumbai. I have a franchisee of Itz Cash Card and operate an Itz Cash world (ICW) in suburban Mumbai for the last few months. Initially I was a little skeptical about this working out for me but its been a great experience for me and is keen to share it with you and also strongly recommend that if you are a housewife then you too should try your hand at this.
We are a nuclear family and apart from the daily chores of the house I did not have anything productive to do at home once my husband left for work and kids went to school and college. A year ago I was a tutor for the kids in my society and I thought of starting tuition classes again keep to keep me busy. This year during summer vacations, we were planning a holiday the booking process was getting hectic since we were not going through any tour operator and we were doing all the bookings ourselves. A students mother told me she could help me do everything sitting at home. When I went to her house, she understood all my requirements as well as budgets and helped me booking online in a lesser cost. I was pretty much convinced with the concept and was curious to know more about it.
She told me that she was a franchisee of Itz Cash Card and operated an Itz Cash World. She told me that ItzCash has tie-ups across various sectors which includes Telecom, Entertainment, DTH, Travel and Tourism industry as well as Utility Services and Municipal Corporations to name a few and an individual can pay their electricity phone, water bill, Air/Rail bookings, DTH recharge etc. As a franchisee she earned between Rs. 7,500/- to Rs. 10,000/- a month.
After being convinced with the new business opportunity, only thing that kept me bothering me was the amount of investment needed. She told me that the process of acquiring a franchise was easy and convenient. I got to know that all I needed was a computer, printer, a broadband connection and an investment of Rs. 1,000/-. ItzCash imparts the basic skill sets to the franchisee owners in terms of specific operating procedures to be followed while transacting with certain services providers.
Then I discussed this with my husband and decided to opt for a franchisee. I spoke to the customer care of ItzCash who addressed my request efficiently and within no time I became a franchisee. Since the time I have taken the franchise, its been a great experience. Slowly and steadily the business has been growing and I am now handling online payments for almost every household in my complex.
There are few eye catching facts she told me about ItzCash ICWs. In the last one year the ICW network grew by 50 from 40,000 to 60,000 and is growing every day. An interesting aspect is that close to 13 of the ICWs in India are owned and operated by women. 12 of all ICWs in Mumbai are owned and operated by women. I am very happy that I was associated with ItzCash ICW. In true sense ItzCash Card is more than a just a service provider but is supporting and nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit among us women and helping us put our spare time to effective use.
