Ram Kumar

Metal Craft Centre

About My Entrepreneurship

My name is Ram Kumar and I am 29 years old. I have studied upto class 10. I come from a family tradition of making metal tools. I have also completed my Vocational Training from TTI, Samthang. I work in the metal craft production house in Sinchula village.

Once I completed my training, I came back home as my father was getting older and there was no one to help my father with his daily metal crafting works.

If my father cannot work with metals, then there is risks of my family losing the skill of metal crafting which we have obtained for many generations and in which my Father have worked for more than 50 years now.

Now I have decided to stay back in the village itself and continue the works. I also got married and I feel confident to take forward the metal crafting business with my spouse.

It has been a long journey indeed with my entrepreneurship venture. After I completed the Basic Entrepreneurship Course in Darla Gewog in year 2019, I have known many Dzongkhag staff and also have been able to interact with them on a daily basis.

My future plan is to expand the metal craft production and develop it as a tourism product so that I can welcome visitors from all over Bhutan to see the beautiful art of making metal tools.

I hope Chhukha Dzongkhag administration will help me greatly to achieve my future plans as they do now also.
