Guided Help

Lakshmi consults the officials associated with the ATMA. From time to time, they get information related to increasing the production of crops and improving animal husbandry. ATMA has helped them to create a local market for their products and earn more profit.

Family Support

During the Corona epidemic, her family supported her in farming and other work. During this time, she used to sell all the milk of dairy at a higher price, as people were reluctant to buy packet milk. Hence the demand for dairy milk increased.

They don’t have to spend anything on the fodder for the animals because they grow it for the animals in the field itself. She earned a profit of Rs 86,000 during the Corona pandemic. Presently she is selling eggs, meat, milk, and vegetables. Other fellow farmers and neighbors help grow the market by spreading the word.

Set up your Own Local Market

During the pandemic, she reared indigenous chickens instead of broilers. She earned more profit from the sale of meat and eggs because the cost of eggs and meat of desi chickens is high. Every month an investment of Rs 20,000 made her earn Rs 35,000, which means she got a direct profit of Rs 15,000. By selling her products in the nearby areas, she created a local market on her own.

ATMA has honored Lakshmi at various forums for her contribution to agriculture and animal husbandry. She is a role model for other women as well as other farmers in the village.
