Vandana Zingare is from Khargaon, Maharashtra. She used to get up early and walk far to fetch water. At the public tap, fights used to break out. She now has a water connection at home, thanks to her loan. Being able to finish household chores, make food for her children on time and then go out to work in the fields are some of the benefits she lists when I asked how the connection helped her.
Getting up early and walking far to fetch water is a thing of past for this lady.
