After realizing that the situation had changed a lot, I returned from Qatar to help my father with his furniture industry – I have installed a small rice milling machine and also attended a business orientation workshop on poultry farming. Now I realize we can start productive enterprises within our own village. So why go abroad?”

  “As a BDS provider, we see people are much interested to   start businesses. It is good to know that people are coming  up with new enterprises. This has also promoted the    concept of ‘productive use of electricity’.”

–          Radha Krishna,

–          BDS provider in Syangjha



Before Business Plan Workshop we were not so aware about productive use of electricity. We were thinking- it is a natural process that enterprises will emerge automatically. The question was “How does a CREE benefit itself from new enterprises?” But after business plan workshop we became very serious in this regard.”

“It was not easy for me to run the family even we already owed a hotel. My husband and I then started a medium sized poultry farm. Productive use of electricity really helps to generate income. Now we sell the chicken at nearly Rs. 220 per kg. We have 3 daughters and all of them are now studying. They even help us in hotel as well as poultry farming business.”
