Amuna Tamang, 42, a resident of Tamakoshi Rural Municipality ward no. 2 Jhule, Dolakha lives with her three daughters. She is a member of the Makhamali self-help group (SHG). Her husband flew to the Middle East 7 years ago and is not in contact with her, which made her life very much critical, especially feeding and educating her daughters.
She is now earning a good amount by selling her produce. In this season only, she has earned NPR 80,000.00 by selling potatoes. She sells her agricultural commodities in a nearby local market (Chhaude Hat). After starting farming, her routine has changed and is spending most of her time on her land cultivating various vegetables. Her two daughters are studying higher education in Kathmandu, and her younger daughter studying in class 10 in the village. “After facing such hardship initially in my life, I am now able to give good education to my daughters. I am satisfied with my farming and continuing in the future. I am thankful to RRN for providing such types of intervention to support us" says Tamang sharing her experiences.
