Monwara Begum’s five-year journey from being a homemaker to a successful entrepreneur began with three cows.
Her dream journey began in 2016 when she convinced her husband to buy the cows to get milk to meet the family’s requirements.
A small cowshed was made for the cattle at her Sreepur village in Boalkhali upazila of the district.
Five years down the line, that cowshed has been replaced by a bigger “Pure Dairy Farm” of 31 cows.
“Five years ago we bought the three milch cows just to meet the milk requirement of our family,” said Monwara. “Then I started selling the surplus milk to neighbours.”
