Driver to Dairy Farm Owner- an entrepreneur’s story


“I am 10th class drop out.  I have worked as a garbage vehicle driver, delivery man, sole bread earner for my family.  I am a dreamer and always wanted to go back to my village and work with Animals.  Passionate to the point of adding pet to my family as family member and taking full care of them with meager income I use to get.  It was Pragati  Foundation which has helped me to  realize and articulate my dream to run a dairy Farm.  My mentor showed confidence in me and invested in my business, so that I can start my dream project.   Today I have 6 cows, 5 calves and 2 bulls”
