Asha Kishore, livestock farmer, village Gangabakshpurva, district Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh, India
Asha and her husband were in for a rude shock when they discovered that the income from their family inheritance – a 1 bigha farm and a sole cow – wasn’t enough to feed their three children. To make ends meet, Kaushal would take up seasonal jobs in the nearest city only until they came across a livestock development programme in their village.
It was Asha who started managing the livestock business. “Earlier, I used to stay indoors but now I feel confident about interacting with people and going about my tasks independently,” shares Asha.
Her confidence allowed Kaushal to continue taking up seasonal jobs. “My income takes care of our daily expenses. But it is the income from the dairy business that has made everything else possible,” he says, referring to the substantial inheritance that Asha’s efforts are creating for their children.
