“I was very passionate about trying my hand at growing vegetables, but could not convince my husband to let me try it. I secretly attended a training course by ACF and with their guidance and support, I found a way to get through to my husband. He finally gave me 10 katha (7,200 sq ft) of land to cultivate on my own.
With my own hands, I planted and tended to coloured cabbage. I poured in a lot of love to those plants. And when it came time to sell them, they drew a price of Rs.35 per piece when an ordinary cabbage was being sold for just Rs.5. After that, my husband sat up and listened to me … and I’ve been farming ever since.”
