62-YO Gujarati Woman Opens Dairy At Home, Sells Rs 1 Crore Worth Of Milk In A Year
The story of Navalben Dalsangbhai Chaudhary, a 62-year-old woman from Gujarat, is one of inspiration, perseverance and the power of determination.
Navalben, who hails from Nagana village in Banaskantha district, defied this odd to start a mini-revolution in her district. She has made a record by selling milk worth Rs 1.10 crore in 2020, earning a profit of Rs 3.50 lakh every month, according to reports. In 2019, she sold milk worth Rs 87.95 lakh.
Navalben started a dairy in her house last year. But now, she has over 80 buffaloes and 45 cows that cater to the milk needs of people from several villages.
The 62-year-old says she has four sons but they earn much less than her. “I have four sons who are studying and working in cities. I run a dairy of 80 buffaloes and 45 cows. In 2019, I sold milk worth Rs 87.95 lakh and was the first in the Banaskantha district in this case. I am also number one by selling milk worth Rs.1 crore 10 lakh in 2020,” she said.
A list of ’10 Millionaire Rural Women Entrepreneurs’ was published by Amul Dairy Chief Executive Officer RS Sodhi on Twitter in August last year. In the financial year 2019-20, these women, involved in dairy farming and animal husbandry, received lakhs of rupees by selling milk to Amul. The President recognised the role of empowered women in the success of the world-renowned cooperative society.
