From 0-1500+ employee …how did she do it and why?

DDBC member Hanne Hansen introduced one of her sources of inspiration, the charismatic indian born Shabnam Ramaswamy. Her tireless efforts and vision have paved for children and especially girls to receive education. To reach her goal she build a co-operative of 1.500+ employee. Why and how did she do it. We got inspired by Shabnam Ramaswamy’s entrepreneurship.
