Geetha Saleesh’s disability did not prevent her from conducting a thriving online business.
Geetha Saleesh, from Thrissur, Kerala, is a blind woman who defies the odds by selling ghee and superfood supplements and earning Rs 50,000 every month.
Geetha was 13 years old when she was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a rare hereditary disorder, when she was diagnosed.
Geetha, who is 39 years old now, gradually lost her vision and was blind by the age of 15 when she died. Her infirmity, however, never stopped her from achieving her goals.
Geetha, who had always wanted to be a teacher, learnt braille and finished her education. Geetha now has a successful online store where she sells homemade food items like ghee and pickles, as well as a turmeric-based superfood supplement.
She and her husband Saleesh Kumar launched ‘Geetha’s Home to Home’ in 2020.
