Success Story of Women SHG (Vermi compost)

A women SHG comprising of 12 members was formed on 15th March 2004 under KVK adopted Mopungchuket Village. The rules and regulations to run the SHG was framed with the help of Programme Coordinator and got approved by the Village Council. In the initial stage each group member contributed Rs. 500/- towards the fund and Rs.10,000/- was given as loan from the KVK revolving fund. The whole amount was then deposited in Joint Bank Account NSCB – 11404 Mokokchung Branch. The group then took loan from the Bank and vermi composting shed was constructed. In the beginning of 2005 a Training on Vermi Compost making was imparted to the SHG members at KVK Yisemyong.

 

The group took the work very sincerely and ventured into the vermi compost production and by August 2005 they harvested the compost 3 times. The total quantity sold during 2005 – 2006 is 1,500 kgs. Apart from sale of compost, live earthworms are also in high demand and the group has supplied 40,000 worms to various individuals and groups. Their total income now stands at Rs.25, 000/-. The SHG is planning to expand the production in order to meet the local demand by constructing more composting units. Seeing their success many farmers and private entrepreneurs are now coming forward to take up vermi compost. 

The groups have created awareness among the farming community about the importance and prospect of using vermi compost for organic crop production. This will definitely pave the way for farmers to switch over to organic farming without hesitation.
