New Delhi, Mar 25 (KNN) About 1.3 lakh women-led MSMEs have sold their products on government-e-marketplace (GeM), said Prof Nagesh Kumar, Director, Institute for Studies in Industrial Development (ISID).
Speaking at the international conference organised by Federation of Indian Women Entrepreneurs (FIWE), Kumar pressed on the need for building capacity to harness the potential of digital marketing by women entrepreneurs.

Women entrepreneurs from the remote areas of India, Nepal, Singapore, Bangladesh, Nigeria and Sri Lanka, were applauded for their exemplary achievements.
Speaking at the occasion, Chief Guest Sandeep Marwah said, “Women are endowed with special characteristics like emotion and empathy which makes them superior to Men. They can have a better success ratio than men in any field. It’s a privilege to be honouring women of courage and resilience who have struggled their way to the top.”
“We are glad that we could bring to the fore, success stories of women entrepreneurs from various villages and tribes of India and acknowledge their hard work. It’s heartening to witness how each one of them have honed their skills and upgraded their products to meet the market demand, from a mere earning of Rs 2,000 a month, some of them have reached to Rs 50,000,” said Dr. Rajni Aggarwal, President, FIWE.
