Ms. Shaik was born to Shaik Nanne Saheb and Shaik Bilkis in 1973. Ms. Shaikh has followed her father’s footstep from a very early age by supporting him in his business activities even during her school days. Mr. Shaikh Kolkar Madaar Saheb, grandfather of Ms. Shaikh was a successful business man who started S.N.S. Transports in 1920, and found success in the wholesale business of vegetables, fruits and textile products across the entire country. The high spiritual and religious cultural and business background was inherited by Ms. Nowhera Shaikh. In 1998, Ms. Shaik Nowhera started an Islamic School for girls at Tirupati Town in the name of ‘Madrasa Niswan’ (under a society registered with the Registration of Societies Act, AP, India, No: 386), with around 150 Students. Most of the students were very poor and could not even afford to buy books and uniform. She gave such poor children free education with lodging and boarding facilities.

Admission to her institution increased and with it the expenses. To be able to take care of the increased expenditure, in 2008 she started the gold exports and imports business under the name of ‘Heera Gold Exports and Imports’ after getting the company registered with the Government of Andhra Pradesh, India. In a short time, she started many more enterprises under the banner of “Heera Group of Companies” – Heera Jewellers, Heera Pure drop, Heera Textiles, Heera Granites, Heera Rice, Heera Electronics, Heera Real Estates, Heera Developers, Heera Foodex, and so on.

The most remarkable quality that she possesses is the power of a clear mind and a pure heart. She seeks nothing but good of the weaker segment of the society in general, women and children in particular.
