    Development Opportunities in the States through Cooperatives:

    Cooperatives can make a major contribution in the development of rural economy. In meeting their members needs cooperatives enhance incomes and secure livelihoods for their members and their communities. Capacity building, training and education remain critical for cooperative development, and strengthening networks is crucial. Strengthening the cooperatives at root level will help in poverty reduction, followed by employment creation, improved food security, women empowerment, social integration, creation of rural markets and human capital development.

    The state of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh come under “cooperatively under developed State” category as classified by the NITI Aayog. The best efforts made by the State Government is providing – Irrigation facilities, Free Electricity, Scheme Loan Waiver to farmers, subsidised seed etc. have boosted the Agricultural Sector and this in-turn will yield best crops raising more demand for NCDC funding mostly in Storage and Agro Processing etc. This will further raise more working capital requirements for Federations / DCCBs / LSCS etc.

    Success Stories of Societies from the state of Telanagana

    Gattududdenapally Large Sized Cooperative Credit Society, Karimnagar (Telangana)

    First hand report of beneficiaries:

    “My name is Silam Ramaiah and I belong to Karimnagar District, Manakondur Mandal, Gattududdenapally village. I was working as labourer and maintaining family before joining Gattududdenapally Large Sized Cooperative Credit Society. I joined as a member in society, 20 years back. I took various types of loans and gradually purchased agricultural land and started cultivating it. I got benefitted by timely repayment of loans. Apart from taking crop loans, I purchased tractor with the help of a long term loan, purchased another tractor with societies own funds and also took emergency loans from the society for various needs. Apart from the above said loans, I used to get sale produces for paddy in advance, before the harvest. I had 20 guntas of land in the past and presently I have 5.20 acres of land. I educated my two children; I brought up my son by earning in this manner. My son is doing job in a Private company in Hyderabad. I got my daughter married in a grand manner. I also constructed a house (bungalow). Farmers are taking loans from Gattududdenapally Large Sized Cooperative Credit Society and developing themselves by proper utilisation of loans. I am really indebted to the society.”

    Sri Beeriah showing Dairy Animals and his Agricultural land before sowing paddy

    My name is Gunti Beeriah and I belong to Karimnagar district, Timmapur Mandal, Polampally village. I joined as a member in Gattududdenapally Large Sized Cooperative Credit Society, 23 years ago, which is in Manakondur Mandal. I initially had 3 acres of waste land. I had difficulty in maintaining my family due to lack of water for farming the waste land and with no crops, I was financially very backward. Around the same time I started agricultural work by construction of a well and made facility for water by preparation of land, by borrowing some loan from society’s funds. Society came to my help again for investments and gradually, I took short term loans and long term loans from the society and started milk production by purchasing 25 cattles. I also purchased tractor and 4 acres of land in course of time. I used cattle manure and reduced fertilisers use in that land, as a result of which crop yield increased and reduction in expenditure occurred. Myself, my family and other members are very happy now, with no financial difficulties. Role of society in building my life and its development is unforgettable. Not only this, members get Rs. 50,000/- as loan with simple RoI for the marriage of girl child, which is very advantageous. Farmers’ welfare can be ensured if such societies exist in each and every village and provide them timely services of this kind. I would like to express my gratefulness to the society.
