Vinod, Discovering the Little Joys of Life as a MENSA Partner

An AC in summer, a geyser during winter, or a microwave in the kitchen are comforts that most people in urban areas take for granted. For Vinod, 32, and his family though, these conveniences have come a little late in life. But better late than never, right? Life has taken a turn for the better ever since he joined Myntra’s Extended Network for Service Augmentation (MENSA), as a part-time delivery partner, more than a year ago. In fact, he has even been able to buy a car recently.

Vinod has spent most of his life running his family’s milk and dairy products’ shop with his father and elder brother. When an opportunity came for him to work as a Myntra delivery partner, he thought it would be a good way to put his free time to use, while earning an additional income. Besides certain tangible and monetary benefits, joining MENSA has led to a level of independence hitherto unimagined by Vinod. With this new-found independence, he is also discovering the little joys that have helped raise his quality of life.

Saving up and securing the future of his two children was something that Vinod always wanted to do. Thanks to his additional income from MENSA, he is fulfilling that dream and now hopes that his children use that money to fulfill theirs. Vinod MENSA

What initially attracted Vinod to work as a MENSA partner was the nature of the work and the flexibility to do it at his own time. Myntra’s delivery-service augmentation program, MENSA, allows people like Vinod to work within a 3-4 km radius during their free time. By building a network of local Kirana stores, Myntra streamlines its operations to boost last-mile delivery all the while augmenting the store owner’s income.

A few hours’ leeway in a day gives Vinod enough time to complete his deliveries. And since the working hours are flexible, it doesn’t hamper the time he sets aside for his family and the shop. Over and above that, he has also met new customers for his shop while delivering Myntra packages. “I’ve had some Myntra customers who found out about our family business. They have given us one or two big orders for special occasions such as weddings or family functions,” he says.

It has been a good run for Vinod with MENSA, which is now spread over 15000 stores across 50 cities in India. He hopes to make it far better in the future.
