With a clear vision to think forward and analyze ground realities, Mr. Muruganandam Arunachalam found that many women in rural areas still use clothes for their menstrual periods which are highly unhygienic. He also understood that the cost with which the multi-nationals sell their napkins, is keeping the rural women away and a solution for this has to be found. Finding that branded napkins by multi-national companies were very costly he decided to design a sanitary napkin making machine which can produce napkins at low cost. After a four-year study, Mr. Muruganandam succeeded in designing a machine for Rs. 65,000 as against the machines now being used costing Rs. 3.5 crores. Though initial response to his product was very poor, Mr. Muruganandam with the help of wife started selling napkins to women nearby. The semi-automatic machine requires only a single phase power supply. In a very short span time, the product has been a success and has been delivered to more than 100 units in many states.
