Economic Empowerment via Microcredit Intervention



CRD provides Artificial Insemination Service, vaccination, deworming, etc. CRD strives to: support poultry growers to establish adequate linkages on their own; and support the young entrepreneurs.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In one of the CRD’s worming areas i.e. Mirza under Kamrup District, most of the people are resettlers coming from Palashbari area after flood erosion of the mighty Brahmaputra. Thus, they have smallholding of land resulting into problems of earning their daily livelihood. Either they have to go for daily wages or to migrate to Guwahati for rickshaw or thela (hand cart). Because of smallholding, livestock farming is the best activity to be taken up by those people especially women.

How will this project solve this problem?

Potential Long Term Impact
