Dila’s Goats

Dila Kumari is 26 years old. Her husband, who is working in the Gulf country, is out of contact. She joined the My Business My Freedom program at the beginning of 2020 and received her first loan. With her microloan, she purchased five kid goats. With the income generated from rearing the goats, she was able to repay the first loan. She then again took a second loan to add additional goats.

Goat rearing has been unaffected by the pandemic whereas most other sectors are highly affected. The breeding of goats with boars has helped her to increase the productivity of goat meat. As goats are bought in the local community for meat consumption, she has no trouble finding buyers.

In the span of a year, she has been able to earn Rs. 100,000 (US$850) through her small business. This is a big deal for her and has changed her world. Besides goat rearing, she is also engaged in a small-scale seasonal vegetable farm.
