Dil lives with her daughter in a rural area 25 kilometers away from the city. They live in two rented rooms with a roof made up of zinc sheets. She works as a farm laborer to provide for her and her daughter.
She joined the My Business My Freedom Program in June 2020 and after training, she received her first microloan. She bought 165 quails and kept them in a coop she made. She is expecting the quails to start laying eggs within the first quarter of 2021. She added that chicken eggs sell for Rs10 (USD 0.08) while a quail egg sells for at least double that. She expects to have a good income and prosper from this small business she started.
