  • Livestock raising and vegetable farming have become major sources of income and have been adopted by the all participating project families.
  • Applying of improved animal management practices has improved the livestock quality as well as production.
  • Some project families have started poultry farms, grocery shops and other microenterprises using their SHG fund, resulting in increased income generation.
  • SHGs continuously undertake different activities to increase their group fund, which is used to make loans, funding even more income generating activities.
  • Increased income from multiple sources has been effective in improving the overall status of the project families; some have added assets.
  • SHGs are focusing their increased income on child education and health care facilities.
