Women have great potential to promote agricultural related (secondary agriculture) enterprise. As women play a major role in dairy, they may be motivated for entrepreneurial ventures. Women can be encouraged through local government development organizations for gender sensitization, training, obtaining credit and access to the market. National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal promoted ten women self-help groups in three districts of Haryana under the project of Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India. Thus women can become capable of better livelihood through their group activities. The women of the group earn an additional income of between Rs 5000 and Rs 20000 per month.
