Rakesh Paliwal Footpath Jalebi (Funnel Cake) Stand

Rakesh came from a small Rajasthani village near Udaipur to make his future in Indore about two years ago. He only makes jalebi (Indian funnel cake) fresh when a customer orders it. Some people like soft jalebi, some people like a well-done jalebi that has a brownish color to it. At present, he is making jalebis at two locations. One location near Anand Bazar in the morning and second location on Kanadia Road in the evening. His overhead is almost zero. He puts his stand on public property which means free rent. Rakesh started this business about two years back. His average sales per day are about Rs. 800 (USD$12) per day. Rakesh asked for help to expand his business. ShantiSeva has promised to help in the future.
