Assamese barbers association – Entrepreneur’s Success Story


People, especially in Assam, have a misconception that business is all about huge investments

Youths in Majuli are driven by a burning desire to become financially independent, and it comes as no surprise that Assamese barbers association – a group formed by local youths is not just making a good living, but also creating job opportunities for others.

The Assamese barbers association has started a total of 101 nos of saloons in Majuli.

“People especially in Assam have a misconception that business is all about huge investments, there are so many educated unemployed youth and I want to tell them that they should take up this business as I believe that they can be successful entrepreneurs like us.” : a member of Assamese barbers association said.

Achievements of the young entrepreneurs are an inspiration to many educated unemployed youth in the river island to explore new innovative ideas and become self-reliant.

India needs 100 million new jobs by 2026 for country’s growth. Such a gigantic target cannot solely be achieved through existing jobs or business as usual, but only through creating self-employment and entrepreneurship-driven employment.

Rural entrepreneurship especially at the village level not only solves the problem of youth unemployment but also is a key factor curbing rural to urban migration.
