Greetings from Gram Mooligai.

Ours is a company owned by Self Help Group of gatherers and cultivators of medicinal plants. The company has been promoted by NGOs led by the Foundation for Revitalization of Local Health Traditions (FRLHT), Bangalore, recognized by the Ministry of Environment and Forest as a Center for Excellence in medicinal plants conservation. I am hereby attaching a brochure about the company.

We have started manufacture of herbal medicines for some select primary health conditions. These medicines are clinically tested based on a protocol developed by FRLHT and manufactured under license issued by the Drug Controller, Tamilnadu. I am hereby attaching our product literature with this letter.

One of the main objectives of the National Rural Health Mission of Government of India is to mainstream Ayush (Ayurveda, unani, Siddha, Homepathy). In this regard, our herbal medicines can help in realizing this objective while providing incomes to Self Help Groups and also meet their health needs in an affordable way. Currently, we have tied up with a few NGOs and selling our medicines through SHGs/Federations. In this deal the SHGs / Federations get a maximum discount up to 35% on the MRP, which becomes a source of additional income for them.

We invite you to join us in promoting these medicines in a mutually beneficial way. Since you are working with SHG or any other community organizations you could explore a business tie-up.

We are sure that you would find the above proposition from us interesting and exciting and we would like to further collaborate with your SHGs and give an introductory talk in their monthly meetings by explaining the importance and utility of the above products. Please do let us know a convenient date and time for the same.

I look forward to hearing from you.
