Female Entrepreneurs Enhance Business
Engro Foundation has partnered with DEG to train 50 female existing dairy entrepreneurs (formerly trained under Engro and USAIDs joint program WELD) in livestock health and nutrition services.
The female entrepreneurs, who in the past were conducting vaccinations and basic health care, are now offering increased health services such as deworming initiatives and primary health care. They are also offering and promoting better and more nutritious feed like fodder seed, wanda and urea molasses cake. The entrepreneurs who were trained as part of the WELD program, had an income ranging from PKR1,500 to PKR20,000 and are continuing to grow under this program. Through this project, 7000 farmers are also being trained and organized into farmer groups, where they are taught better nutrition and health practices.
