I am from farmer family so after completion of engineering degree in electronics i decided not to join any company but to start of my own. Geographical area of my village is suitable for production of tomato. So i decided to start a processing plant in my village itself. Before establishment of my processing plant, farmers used to throw away the surplus tomatoes due to very low market rate. My company assured farmers regarding rate so now the economic conditions of farmers are good now.
