Jammu and Kashmir’s Zarka launched her own local detergent brand in J & K

It’s always good to see a woman rise from hard and difficult situations and enthuse people all around. Zarka Tanzeel of Budgam district, Jammu and Kashmir is one such example. The woman has inspired us all by launching her own local detergent brand in the union territory.


Zarka always dreamt of starting her own business. However, all this success didn’t come easy to her. What adds to the glory, is her supportive husband who helped her in launching her own detergent brand.

“I completed my education in Srinagar and got married in Budgam district but I couldn’t leave my dreams. I wanted to do something for myself and for society after marriage,” conveyed Zarka in an interview with ANI.

“I shared an idea of establishing my own business with my husband and started research for it. Soon I got the idea to set up a unit for making detergent powder and soap cakes and after a lot of research with the support of my husband, I started the “KMR Sheen” brand of local detergent powder and set up the factory”, she said.

She has been able to create employment opportunities in the Budgam district and has employed several people including the women of the district.

“It was her dream project. She told me that she wanted to do something, then she decided to open a unit of detergent. The brand has become famous in Kashmir valley as people prefer to use local brands,” added Syed Tanzeel, Zarka’s husband.

Zarka worked as a teacher before she  transformed into a self-made businesswoman. Working at her  factory, she is the proud owner of KMR detergent brand. The woman also faced her share of troubles with her married life and work, before her business was set up. Business funding was another such hurdle she overcame and finally succeeded in actualizing her dreams. Like all the other industries and businesses, her business tumbled too, due to the covid-19 aftermath. Now she just awaits the pandemic blues to subside so that she can get her work up and running once again.
