From living under a broken roof to earning INR 1.5 lakhs a month has turned our fortunes and I am grateful to VMate for this opportunity.”
Ms. Komal Singh – a popular VMate video creator from Bihar said, “VMate actually helped me to earn name, fame, and money by doing what I love the most, that is dancing to Bhojpuri songs. Initially, my family members were bit reluctant and being a married woman, it was not easy. But with time and dedication, everything fell in place. People now recognize me and I am able to support my family financially also.”
