Gaining identity as farmers: A case of women collectives in Kerala

The Kerala State provides a different picture of the success of women in farming. Collective power of women groups, integration of local self governments and proactive credit schemes have enabled landless women to emerge as commercial organic farmers in Kerala. Women are now visible as major farmers in the State, cultivating large areas of paddy, vegetables, banana and tuber crops, on a group basis. A large number of women are gaining identity as “farmers” under these women collectives.
