She started her journey by making products like bags and curtains at home. Soon after, she started the Durgeshwari self-help group in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh. Self-reliance was an important ingredient in her recipe to success and she began with providing employment to other women too. Today, her products have reached the market. Yes, you heard that right. Renu runs her own store in the Rabti complex in Gorakhpur. The products made by the women of her SHG are also exported to other cities.
