Palakkad , Kerala | Ayurvedic herb business
"Elizabeth is a 42yr old woman living in a village in Palakkad district, Kerala. She is married to Mahimaraj, a porter by profession. The couple has an 18yr-old daughter Pency. To help her husband meet ends, Elizabeth started a home-based goat-rearing business, with a loan worth INR 7500 (now repaid). She has also been operating a small-scale Ayurvedic herbs venture since the past 2 years. With her experience she is confident of taking the venture to the next level - becoming a reliable second-income generator for the family. Elizabeth can achieve this with a loan worth INR 10,000 from Rang De donors which will be utilized to source plants in large quantities. This will help her keep the production costs down, which means she gets higher returns from sale." read more
