January 15, 2023

Yes!poho is honoured to receive an award from MR. ARBAAZ KHAN as the BEST E-COMMERCE BRAND IN INDIA in an event named as BRAND ICON OF THE YEAR 2023.

Yes!pho is different from other companies because we don’t treat employees as an employee they are the yespovian’s, and we don’t treat our customers as customer they all are guest for us, we treat them as our guest and sharing some yespovian quotes -

Raghuram Kuchibhatla founder and CEO of Yes!poho India Pvt Ltd:- “ My aim of my life is to improve the livelihood and social-economic conditions of the craftsmen and revive the dying culture of handloom and handicraft artisans. To provide a platform to weavers for direct engagement with the prospective customers. I believe in working with artisans at the grass-root level. Unlike any other e-Commerce or social community. I believe that working at the grass-root level helps us understand artisan’s pain points. While it helps build trust and relationships in the long run, the short-term gains are even higher when we interact with them at the grassroots.”

Meenakshi Dubey, COO of Yes!poho India Pvt Ltd:- “ I believe that everyone is talented, but they are not aware of it. I work with women artisans and help them to grow their business and support them in every way so that they can showcase their workmanship over the world.”
