Success Stories:

  • Jharkhand Women’s Self-Supporting Poultry Co-operative Federation Ltd., Ranchi (JWSPCFL):
    The JWSPCFL, Ranchi is the largest commercial production house of poultry in eastern India. Registered under Jharkhand Self-supporting Co-operative Society Act 1996 on 31st March, 2005, JWSPCFL has come a long way while delivering its objective of providing a sustainable livelihood.
    In the year 2002, the activity was initiated bythe members of women self-help group of Lohardaga district of Jharkhand, with the support of PRADAN, a national level NGO. Initially, only 60 members showed their interest and formed a co-operative society by registering under Jharkhand Self-supporting co-operative act. Subsequently, in a short span of time, four more cooperatives were established in the disctricts of Gumla, Lohardaga, East Singhbhum and Ranchi (presently Khunti). The cooperative societies further organized into a state level federation which has been registered under the same act. It is now a strong institution of 5072 rural marginalized women from 09 cooperatives across Jharkhand who are able to realize their potential as an entrepreneur. The sales turnover of JWSPCFL has grown nearly ten folds from Rs.9.93 crore in FY 2006-07 to Rs.110.96 crore in FY 2018-19.
    The members of cooperative societies are women who belong to financially and socially marginalized and weaker section of the society i.e. STs, SCs & OBCs, with more than 80% belonging to Tribal population. Today, with a minimum requirement of one cent of land (500 sq. feet) either self owned or on lease a member earns between Rs.40,000 to Rs.50,000 a year which works out to Rs.200-250 a day for 200 days of engagement. This income is available to them in regular stream of cash flows on a continuous basis, helps to meet the need of cash expenses and also in capital formation for the family. This income strengthens the women to negotiate a better deal for herselfwithin the family and in larger society.
    The society has been assisted by NCDC under weaker section programme with a financial assistance of Rs.14.345 crore to the Federation for poultry development including hatchery, feedmill, poultry sheds, margin money etc.
    The exceptional work done by the JWSPCFL for upliftment and better livelihood of the rural women in Jharkhand, has been acknowledged by various organizations at All India/ State level and the Federation and its member cooperatives have been bestowed with numerous awards. These include Outlook Agriculture Conclave and Swaraj Awards, 2018 for the Federation, NCDC Regional award for Cooperative Excellence and Merit Award, 2018 for its various member cooperatives.
