THANE: A first-of-its-kind all women farmers and traders initiative was recently flagged-off in the city with over 500kg farm fresh produce being sold in a matter of few hours.
"This would be a small step from our part to help these women stand on their feet and encourage others to get empowered.
"Several single women cultivators would soon be part of thise initiative which could help them not just earn a decent income for their efforts but also motivate others to be part of this initiative and be empowered.
Even as the inaugural event witnessed few women cultivators and members of self help group participating with their male counterparts, the organizers said they were confident that the response would now encourage more female farmers to be part of thise initiative.
