Role of women in the dairy
Govind Milk is committed towards the welfare and upliftment of women in rural areas. Women have always played a major role in the dairy industry and have been a moving force behind the growth of Govind.
How do we do it?
Soft loans to the tune of Rs. 12 crores have been disbursed to them through NABARD, Malojiraje Bank, Shrimant Saibai Maharaj Mahila Patasanstha (a woman’s co-operative credit society), Bank of Maharashtra in which Govind’s management played a role as mediator and guarantor. The recovery ratio is almost 99% which is truly appreciable. Govind Milk, also educate women in dairy related work viz., to produce clean milk and to run a milk collection centre on their own. The income from these businesses is directly credited to them rather than giving it to their husband or children.
Govind Milk is proud to have over 100 committed women working in the dairy in various departments like research, production, packing, cleaning etc.
