About My Entrepreneurship
My name is Tshewang Zangmo, but many people call me JJK which derives from the name of my small flower sale outlet on the highway. I started my flower enterprise in year 2018 and I sell flowers and pots to the highway traveler. I got trained by Chhukha Dzongkhag through floriculture training conducted in Gedu in September, 2021. I have also got trainings conducted by DCSI prior to that.
I completed by Bachelors Degree from Taktse college and opted to do flower and plant nursery startup because of my love of flowers and plants.
The main challenge I face now is not having a proper place to sell my flowers. There is also shortage of workers. The shortage of flower seeds and saplings is another problem.
I would like to expand my nursery in future if I could avail a government land lease around Wangkha area.
Through my small enterprise, I have also come to know many staff of Chhukha Dzongkhag and also I have become a member of Entrepreneurs of Chhukha. I feel it is a small and cohesive group to help each other in our businesses. I contribute few amounts monthly for the Entrepreneurs of Chhukha saving fund as well.
