BQPortfolio: Suraj Uchil Must Either Follow His Heart Or Fulfil His Mother’s Dream

BQPortfolio speaks to citizens from across India about their financial goals and helps them access expert advice on how to achieve them.

Suraj Uchil, 29, wants to be a restaurateur. “It’s in my blood,” he said.

The thing is, Uchil’s mother wants him to prioritise buying a house before he gets married and starts his own family. Uchil anticipates that he will need at least Rs 15 lakh by 2025 for the down payment for the house he has identified. Alternatively, he can use this amount as seed capital to either start a small restaurant or cafe.
