A women-run dairy cooperative society in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara district is scripting a happy story for women here who have milked profit out of the venture.
The micro-dairy in non-descript Dhapda village of Mandal block, started in 2014, milks nearly 2 to 2.5 lakh litres per month from 1500 litres milk collected from nearly 200 households on a daily basis.
Buoyed by the success in dairy, the society has now entered the market of spices. The Dhapda Masala Udhyog Samiti was set-up in 2016, which earns 30,000 to 35,000 monthly for the society. Women are paid Rs. 20 per hour for grinding spices manually. They sell turmeric, chilly and coriander powder in the Bhilwara and also in the local market.Click Here: Cardiff Blues Store
