Geeta would supply breakfast and tea-time snacks to them and make enough money for the living of her family.

In 2021, she realized the importance of branding and named her brand PatilKaki. She started using social media to get more visibility. She has a team of 25 women to work with her. In this way, she empowered many women during the pandemic.

She served only a few customers in the beginning. They grew month-on-month.
