The approach to promote mushroom cultivation opened up a new opportunity of earning an extra income for a good number of women in the area. The greatest advantage for these women was that mushroom cultivation does not require any cultivable land and can be grown at the homestead or inside the dwelling house if a suitable space is available. While only select women took the training, many others have subsequently tried their hands at the venture replicating their neighbours doing it. The amount that is being produced is being sold without any formal institutional support. There is also a great demand for mushrooms in big hotels and restaurants and it can ruen out to be a very profitable venture for the women if marketed properly.
