Tender coconut seller
Raju sells tender coconut water in Jaipur all year long for ₹30-40. At the festival he sells it for ₹100-150 each, making ₹20,000-30,000 in three days. Usually, it would take him about a month to make the same amount in Jaipur.
“Someone from the festival team lives in Jaipur and buys coconut water from me. He asked me if I would like to sell coconuts here, and make some money, so I started a stall in Alsisar.”
