After completing my course I
would like to work in the field of women empowerment and upliftment. As per
2013-14 Agriculture census around 60% of Indian population are indulge in
Agriculture and allied activities and their total contribution to country’s GDP
are only 16-17% .If we want increase GDP contribution percentage, it’s
necessary to increase women contribution in agriculture allied activities like
dairy, fisheries etc. In patriarchal society like India to promote women
empowerment and upliftment , it is important to increase women contribute in
house hold income.

Women in rural India spend around
70-80% of their time in doing daily house hold chores and looking after elders
which is not adding to the GDP because these are extended SNA(system of national
account) activities. So it is important to indulge them in the activity which
is less time and capital intensive to ensure that they actively participate in
income generation activities. So I would like to form women cooperatives
related to dairy, pickle making, jewelry making, fisheries and other
agriculture allied activities depending upon the resources and skill available at
village level. Creating women cooperative is a small part of the entire value
chain, providing them timely resources related to raw material , monetary
support , support from different government and non-government institutions ,
finding suitable market for the product and generating demand through different
promotional activities .In order to develop these functions and make them
self-sustainable I require deep knowledge in finance , marketing , project
management , entrepreneurship and human resource management .Cooperatives are
based and promote values like equality , democracy and solidarity which is
useful in empowering women .There are numerous examples of women cooperative’s
worldwide that have changed life of many , I would like to be part of that
