Agartala, 3rd May 2024:   Ampi Nagar forest range officials have launched a groundbreaking project aimed at accelerating financial stability within family setups among women Self-Help Group (SHG) beneficiaries. Under the supervision of Ampi Nagar ranger, an initiative has been taken to provide training in dry fish fermentation to SHG teams, as reported.

In an effort to empower women and bolster rural economies, Ampi Nagar forest range officials in Gomati district have embarked on a pioneering project. Spearheaded by the guidance and supervision of Ampi Nagar ranger, the initiative aims to equip SHG beneficiaries with the skills necessary for dry fish fermentation.

Reportedly, under the SCATFORM project, beneficiaries are undergoing training sessions conducted by resource persons to enhance their proficiency in establishing dry fish fermentation projects, particularly in rural areas where there is a significant demand among indigenous communities.

Chandra Deb Jamatia, the dry fish fermentation process trainer, has imparted essential knowledge and expertise to numerous SHG women, laying the foundation for them to initiate and manage such projects effectively, thereby creating a sustainable income source within their communities.

According to official reports, each SHG will receive Rs. 1,00,000 from the forest department to manage raw materials and kick-start their respective projects. Forest officials have pledged to provide continuous support and guidance to the women beneficiaries, ensuring the success of their endeavors.

Expressing their gratitude, the woman beneficiaries highlighted the invaluable lessons learned during the training sessions, which have equipped them with the necessary skills to embark on the dry fish fermentation process, thus contributing to their family’s financial stability.

It is anticipated that this innovative and profitable business venture will not only thrive in the future but also strengthen the financial status of families within the community.
