Village Woman Turns Entrepreneur Through Nimboli

This is a story of Laxmiben Ajitsinh Dabhi, who has turned into an entrepreneur. This 48-year-old Class VIII pass and mother of three from Chhipiyal village in Kheda’s Kathlal taluka has no land. Her primary income is from three buffaloes — only one of which gives 5-10 litres milk daily at any given point — and a sewing machine that brings in about Rs 100 daily.

Laxmiben aggregates the nimboli that women in her village collect from neem trees, which flower towards April-end and start bearing fruits around mid-May.
