Lalthlamuani – Mizoram

I was born in 14 February 1999 and brought up at a small village named Leisenzo located in the border of India and Myanmar where I completed my elementary studies. My father is a farmer growing ginger and apples. I finished BBA from Mizoram University in 2021.

While studying BBA course, I was among the finalist in Start Up India Mizoram Yatra in 2018. I was also the finalist in Mizoram Kailawn 2019, a business plan contest, which is an initiative by Govt of Mizoram through its New Economic Development Policy to promote entrepreneurship in the state. I am the winner of Pandemic Innovative Challenge organized by Planning & Program Implementation Department of Govt of Mizoram in the year 2020. I support my education from prize money and other funding that I won from this competition and the winner in Mizoram Rahbi 4.0 2022 under Planning & Program Implement Department of Govt of Mizoram

I started a firm named ‘Eco Far’ producing and marketing variety of products while in the college through which I won these competitions. I met Mr. PB Lalrinfela during these competitions who was also among the competitors. Together we founded a brand named ‘Tribeland’ in 2019, manufacturing three varieties of coffee.

However, it is my firm ‘Eco Far’ I am pushing forward these days. This Eco Far extend its business in manufacturing and processing Jungle Tea, based in my native village in the India- Myanmar border. I formed a society named ‘Leisenzo Tea Society’ in this village, in which I am a chairman, so that the village people can have a sustainable employment by supplying jungle tea leaves to my Eco Far Tea Factory. My firm Eco Far is now empanelled by the Ministry of Tribal Affairs, GoI to supply the jungle tea products and this Ministry is in the process of sponsoring my Leisenzo Tea Society for training the society members.

Some women of the village doesn’t get sustainable market and income from their weaves, at their request and helping them to sell their productsproducts. We are currently support 20 women

Hand Weaver from my village and sending their good out of statestate, it is currently available at 7 northeast Airport. Eco Far also used their products to pack their tea products.
