Pulwama: A young woman from South Kashmir’s Pulwama district has leaped on the ladder of success and became a job-provider in just a few years.

Khair-u-Nisa, 23, a resident of Gongoo village of Pulwama district is presently owner of automatic milk collection centre, a dairy farm, a fodder shop and a poly hi-tech.

Talking to ‘Kashmir Vision’, Khair-u-Nisa said her family suffered huge losses in hardware business in 2016 after which she decided to provide support to the family and also become self reliant herself.

With the help of Self Help Group (SHG), she started an automatic milk collection centre in her locality, and, steadily after earning good financial dividends, she decided to start a dairy farm which she runs herself.

“I have five cows at present in the farm,” she said.

After starting a dairy farm, Khair-u-Nisa said she bought a load carrier and then an auto, and soon thereafter started a fodder shop.

Now, she said, she has started a poly hi-tech, used to grow exotic flowers and vegetables in adverse conditions and is presently providing jobs to two persons.

She said that it is important for all women to become self-dependent by taking advantage of different government schemes.

As advice to young women, she said there is no need for them to remain after government jobs.

“If a person is hardworking, he/she will be able to earn more than a government employee does, and can also provide jobs to others,” she said.

She gave credit of her success to National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM) because of which she was able to start her venture.
