Sushila Tamang, Roses plantation, Okharpauwa

DSC_2756_3699.jpgSushila Tamang, a resident of Okharpauwa, Nuwakot, has been running her flower culture business since January 2010. A joint business venture between her and her husband in their 16 acre land, the business produces Tata and Dutch roses that are sold in Kathmandu. Previously, she only helped her husband with simple work such as weeding, watering, cutting flowering strip and packaging since she was unaware of the workings of the business aspects in floriculture. Her supportive role in their business rapidly progressed to a leadership role when she teamed up with BSC that provides her with a basic business management training. Ever since, she has been to conduct the business smoothly on her own while her husband is away starting a farm in another area.

In addition to the business trainings, Sushila also received 10 day floriculture training from BSC. She learnt new techniques to grow and nurture the roses while inhibiting disease occurrences. Equipped with new skills and confidence, she is planning to expand her business by opening her own bank account and adding in new varieties of flowers such as Carnation, Gerbera and Marigold after consultation with her trainer. Her net profit of Rs. 4000 is just one aspect of her earnings. She is now a proud financial contributor to her family while gaining her husband’s trust to operate her own business. Her in laws support her by helping her with household chores and her neighbours visit her farm to encourage her work.
