The Greenland group which was registered under Puthur CDS of Thrissur district is working since 2006. There is a unique reason behind the birth of the group. One of the member, MrsSudhadevi lost her son and she was in a situation of losing her own mind. So to get her back to life, they started the group and started farming. Initially they cultivated green pea in 1.50 acres. In the first stage they incurred a small loss. But the aim is to revive sudhadevi, so they didn’t mind it. Next time they leased 2 acres of land and cultivate banana and pea. That time they got a income of 8000 per head. Right now they are cultivating, pea, banana, Tapioca etc in 9 acre. They got 132000 as incentive and 22721 rupees as interest subsidy. The unity between the members is the primary reason behind the success of the group, Chandrika added.
In their 9 acres of land, they are cultivating different types ofvegetables and banana. They got 132000 rupees incentive and 22721 rupees subsidy. They managed to make 52000 to 56000 rupees income in every season.
