Hello everyone, I’d like to start by greeting my readers with a warm “Namaskar” and welcome you to part 5 of my blogs. After completing our seven-day training, our trainer and senior technical assistant (STA) from WAWCAS Nepal came to visit my business a few days later. It was a pleasure to have them both at our home for a check-up. Their visit brought me great joy. I was happy for another reason – I had started my goat farming business. However, I was nervous to show it to my friends. When Sima, Sonika, and Sudesh (our trainers) saw it, they were all very pleased. Sudesh (senior technical assistance) inspected the business and advised me to keep a distance between the goats and the place where I dump the manure. I agreed and promised to keep the area clean and never to dump manure near the goats.
Sima asked me how I started my business. It is a very emotional topic for me because starting my own business was a significant achievement. Due to my poor financial condition, I had to work as a daily wage earner. However, after the WAWCAS program was introduced in our village, I was able to learn how to improve my economic condition.
I am feeling anxious about starting a goat farming business because I am unsure if it will be profitable as per my business plan. This is a completely new venture for me and I have no prior experience in this field. To begin with, I need to construct a goat shed, and my husband is helping me cut bamboo for this purpose. It took two days to cut and bring it home. We thought of raising a goat in a small area at the corner of our house. I made a goat shed in three days with the help of my husband. I utilized seed money to buy a goat. I bought three goats among them one goat was pregnant but now it has given birth to two baby goats. So, I hope I will earn some money. Finally, I would like to thank our trainer who supported me very much. I promise I will always give continuity to my goat farming business, and I will save more money and become a successful businessperson in life. Sima took the baby goat, and she said it was so cute, but my baby goat was suffering from diarrhea. Thank God! Sudesh came at the right time. He checked my baby goat and gave me some medicine. He told me it would take 3 hours for the goat to completely get well. I really thanked Sudesh. We talked about so many things and our trainer gave me congratulations and advised me to do continuity in business.
