Her family of 6 members ekes out a living by farming on their 1 and a half acres of land. Most of the farmlands in this region are largely rain-fed and unprecedented rainfall hinders agriculture activity. “With increasing competition in the education, paying school fee for my two children studying in class 8th and 11th at a private school, was a difficult task” recalls Saraswati.
With help from ASA in the form of a shallow borewell, her income from farm activities has increased a lot due to the irrigation facility. In the Kharif of 2020, the availability of water helps her in taking up vegetable farming. “I could manage to earn 3 to 4 thousand weekly for farming. The nationwide lockdown would have pushed us to think twice about educating our children in a private school, but, thanks to ASA for helping. This has helped improve our lives” smiles Saraswati.
