International Women's Day: Kashmiri girl leaves job to set up all-women bakery unit in Bandipora

Bandipora (J-K), Mar 08 (ANI): Nida Ramzan Lone, an Msc in Information Technology, was earning a decent salary as a teacher but she wasn't satisfied. She decided to jump into uncharted waters and set up an all-woman bakery in her village.

Lone is a native of remote Ashtingoo village of Bandipora district. "I always wanted to do something on my own, but I had no resources.

I needed a platform and it was provided to me by Aseem Foundation, a Pune-based NGO. It helped me start my project," says Nida, a computer application graduate.

"My family also supported me in making my dream a reality. The cookies are made here but marketed in Mumbai, Pune and other places.

The response has been amazing. We don't compromise on quality and use original locally grown products," Nida added.

Three girls work with her. About 100 Kg of cookies, made out of apples and walnuts and branded 'Kashir Crush', are produced every month, Nida said.

Nida is planning to increase production in coming times.
