Durgi Sarki’s living standard and social dignity has changed now
Dang, Ghorahi, May 21, 2021: Durgi Sarki’s living standard and social dignity has changed sharply after Rural Women Development-RWDC (Gramin Mahila Uthan Kendra) provided a loan of Rs 15000 through Aatmabirbhar Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Limited to buy five piglets to start her entrepreneurship. Durki Sarki is a permanent resident of Rapti rural municipality ward no 2, Brakhutti village.
Now Durgi has extended her pig farm to accommodate around 150 pigs whose piglets she sells for Rs 4000. The pigs also deliver piglets on every three months.
Durgi has constructed other farms to accommodate 500 boiler chickens, 500 local chickens and 100 ducks in it. She says it is easy to get the regular income from boiler chickens as they are grown up after 45 days. Similarly, ducks grow up to be three kgs after four months and can be sold in the market at the rate of Rs 600 per kg.
Now, Durki is generating at least Rs 40,000 in a month to spend Rs 6000 on the education of her three children who are attending schools. He husband also supports her in finding market for the pigs, poultry and ducks produced in her farm.
But all these things did not happen magically. She recalled her past days and said, ten years ago when she was poor, landless, deprived, and was thinking of how to earn some money to survive in life, she had met with RWDC staff B.P Oli who had come to her village to form a saving group of women who were to get loan on group collateral basis.
She joined the women saving group formed under RWDC promoted Aatmanirbhar LBS program and started saving money. The benefit she got was the loan without collateral. And it changed her life forever.
“My family condition would not have changed without the financial support of Aatmanirbhar LBS which I got without collateral. I got the loan up to Rs 300000 starting with Rs 15,000 to invest in my farms which has given me enough benefit. So much thanks to Aatmanirbhar LBS and its microfinance program that really made my dreams come true, ” Durgi said.
