Goal of the company: Enhancing income through promoting better goat rearing practices among poor and marginalized women through SavitriBai Phule Goat Producers Company.

Background: Sinnar is located around 30 Km west of Nashik. It was identified that Sinnar is a drought prone area, wherein out of 129 villages in Sinnar Taluka, 43 villages get water supply through tankers in summer season. Due to drought, undertaking agricultural activities became a challenging task. This affected the socio economic prosperity of people living in Sinnar and posed a challenge to the development organizations of Sinnar to transform the scenario.

The above socio economic scenario is prevailing in villages lying on the southern part of Pune-Nashik highway i.e, Nandur, Dodhi-Budruk, Dodhi-Khurd etc. Hence it became highly important to work in this area especially with target group of women who are either widow or single, the most vulnerable sections of the society for creating sustainable livelihood opportunities for them. Secondly, it would be important to work with local resources to create livelihood opportunities and thus through our analysis there are two livelihood options- Goat farming and Poultry farming which is been undertaken by the families in these villages. Though the village ecosystem supports these two livelihood options, they were not being commercially practiced due to non-existence of certain basic infrastructure facilities. To look into this matter, SavitriBai Phule goat Producer Company was established to improve goat rearing practices among women and enhance their income by targeting on livelihood opportunities.

Geographical Coverage: This Company is located at Dodi Bk, Taluka Sinnar, District Nashik. Company’s operational area contains 30 villages of Sinnar Block.
