This 10th pass of the Sangli district will always be a youthful example for those who cry for unemployment and a big salary package. Due to his dedication and his hard work, this young man started a business of crores by selling goats.
Tejas Lengre, a resident of Bamani village in the district, passed the Class X exam in 1999 and decided to start a business instead of continuing his studies. With the intention of doing something great, Tejas first started the transportation work with a tempo and from there his luck was initiated. Tejas, who carried goats at his own tempo for almost a year, considered starting a modern goat-farming business.
There Was No Money To Start A Business
Tejas did not have the money to start a business. The financial condition of the family members was also not so good that they could give 20-25 thousand rupees altogether. But Tejas did not give up and borrowed some money. He bought two goats of African bore breed and started a ‘Mahakali Bakra Farm‘ by planting a shed near his house.
20-22 Lakhs Of Income Every Year
Within a few years, Tejas started his business and made a big profit. Currently, Tejas has more than 150 goats and is earning 20 to 22 lakh rupees per year from these goats. There is a lot of demand among farmers for their dung fertilizer, Tejas is earning up to one lakh from this manure as well.
Goats Get Special Treatment
Tejas gives special treatment to their goats. They are given grass to eat three times a day. Protein powder is mixed with water to increase weight. After every 21 days, goats are injected with medicine and injections to avoid illness. A special kind of grass has been laid to reduce odor.
One Goat Is Sold For One Lakh
Tejas have more than 100 goats of African bore species, whose weight reaches 120 to 150 kg in a year. During Eid, the goats of Tejas are sold for 70 thousand to 1 lakh rupees easily.
Customers Wait To Buy A Goat
Tejas never needed a market to sell goats. Traders and newcomers to goat farming come to the Tejas goat farm and buy many male goats and female goats. Sometimes customers have to wait for months.
