Dairy Farming of KSF does have a literal influence in uplifting a beneficiary’s lifestyle which is clearly visible in the story of  Siddika Begum. Despite a small family,  Siddika had to look for additional income as her husband did not earn enough and her son was suffering from some physical disabilities.  Siddika started thinking about rearing cows but could not afford it. To manage the money, she was registered as a member of Padma Organic women cooperative group on 8th May, 2010. Afterwards, she was able to buy a cow worth of TK 25000/ from the KSF project of dairy farming.  Siddika paid off half of the installments with milk and cow dung and other half with weekly repayment of cash within a year. Now she has both cow and calf whose present market value is TK 35000.  Siddika did not need to buy milk for her family as she got milk from her own cow last year. Definitely, this saves her cost of milk and also creates a way to earn some money. Last year, she was able to make an inspiring amount of earnings of TK 11000.Siddika thinks that dairy farming is a profitable business and affirms to expand her herd with  more cows. She is hoping for a better livelihood and this dream will come true because she has relantless energy and thirst for success.
