Kudumbashree since its inception along with Community Mobilization and Capacity Building has promoted Micro Enterprises as Income Generation Activity for its members. Animal Husbandry projects of Goat rearing and Cow rearing were implemented initially along with Lease Land Farming initiatives. Taking into consideration market needs, Samagra Animal Husbandry projects namely Goat Village, Ksheerasagaram and Nature Fresh Milk were later implemented which eventually transformed into Farmer's Producer Companies in Kannur Idukki and Wayanad. From 2014 onwards, 5 Samagra Animal Husbandry Projects namely Goat Village, KsheeraSagaram, Male Buffalo calf Rearing and allied projects to cater the demand for meat animals, Backyard Egger Poultry rearing project and Duck rearing project has been sanctioned with 35% project cost as subsidy, to the beneficiaries with community level support systems of Micro Enterprise Consultants and "PashuSakhi" to help the women members in skill training, credit linkage, convergence and marketing. Kudumbashree believes that to cater the ever increasing demand of milk, meat and egg in our state, "Production by Masses “ is the best option.
