Organic Farming Cooperatives In Nepal: One That Is Exclusively Run By Women

Panchakanya Agriculture Cooperative Ltd. is a Nepalese cooperative well known for its use of organic methods and for being a successful exclusively women run organization. It has supported its members in farming organically and has helped increase their income derived from farming. Besides this, the cooperative has also lowered the costs of seeds and other materials, as well as lowered the cost of healthcare for the community. Following in the footsteps of Panchakanya, many other cooperatives in Nepal have started replicating their organic approach to farming.
