We all would have heard many great stories about people who had come up well in their lives inspite of having poor background. This story of Divya Rawat is amazing one. This Divya was born in a village named Chamoli in Uttarakhand and faced many difficulties in her life as a kid. Life was not bed of roses for her after her father died when she was a kid at the school at the age of seven.

After finishing her graduation she was flooded with many offers from many MNC’s but her love and respect for the villagers made her reject the offers and it must be noted that she moved to Delhi and did Masters in Social Work there. It was in Dehradun that she came to know about this mushroom business and learnt the intricacies of it and launched her own mushroom farming. It is interesting to note that mushroom is a cash crop and could be cultivated indoors also. Thereby effects of natural calamities could be avoided. Another advantage of this mushroom cultivation is it needs less space when compared to others. Its huge gap of demand and supply in the market makes mushroom business highly profitable.

According to Divya Rawat mushroom cultivation is a part of agriculture and gives great amounts of money than other crops cultivation. This mushroom could be cultivated all over the year with no machinery or electricity. The amazing part of this business is a person could start with just Rs 60 itself. Superb!!
