    • India has more than 6,30,000 villages, most of these are 'hard to reach' and offer relatively lower business potential. Hence, reaching them through the conventional distribution system is a challenge. Followed the approach of doing business which we call “doing well by doing good”. Project Shakti is a rural distribution initiative that targets small villages. The project benefits HUL by enhancing its direct rural reach and also creates livelihood opportunities for underprivileged rural women. Shakti model is very strong and sustainable because it is the best way we can give back to the society through supporting our cause of ' empowering underprivileged rural women' along with making business sense. Shakti started with 17 women in two states. Today, it provides livelihood enhancing opportunities to about 45,000 women in 15 Indian states and provides access to quality products across 100,000+ villages and over 3 million households every month .
