Women of Kewat community attracted to mushroom farming

krishilogoBanke (Khajura), Aug. 30: The women of Kewat community have been making good income from mushroom farming in Banke district in the recent days. The women from Kewat community, the ethnic community enlisted as the marginalised one, have earned a decent life besides managing money for their children’s education from the mushroom farming. The women of the community have also formed a group of their own for the commercial mushroom farming after getting the skill-oriented trainings and technical assistance from the District Agriculture Development Office and other organisations. Kalawati Kewat, a member of Parbat Women’s Microenterprise Group, said that commercial mushroom farming has become a strong support for reducing their economic burden as well as making some savings too.
The farmers do not have to worry for the lack of market to supply the mushroom as Nepalgunj has become the good market to sale their products. Likewise, the District Agriculture Development Office is likely to invest nearly Rs 20 million in the current fiscal year to lure the unemployed youth towards agriculture. As part of the same, a total of 48 youth were selected for mushroom farming and preparations are underway to provide Rs 1.6 million for them for the business ventures.
