Bal Krishna Moyal who hails from Bhagalpur in Bihar was running a successful cloth business in Mumbai. He admits of earning around Rs 3 lakh every month from his business. After living in Mumbai for over 18 years, he returned to his hometown, a few years ago.
The 40-year-old was appalled to see the unhygienic conditions prevalent in the area due to non-disposal of the solid waste from the vegetables and fruit markets, “I was deeply distressed to see the heaps of cow dung and other waste strewn all around. It was not only creating a bad impression of my city but also leading to the spread of diseases. Even the temple waste was not disposed properly,” says Moyal.
He sensed a business opportunity into it. Moyal thought of converting the waste into vermicompost that could not only help in its disposal but would also provide organic fertilizers to the farmers and ensure supply of healthier and nutritious food items, “We place our empty garbage boxes outside the temples and near markets for dumping of the waste. It is then collected by our team and converted into organic fertilizer with the help of cow dung,” he says adding that the fertilizers are then sold to the farmers.
The business from the waste that he started a year ago is now bringing him a profit of Rs 75,000 every month. Moyal has now dropped his plan to return to Mumbai. He is working on a mission to keep his city clean and to also expand his business. His brand name is Jaivik Krishak.
