Tamilarasi is a housewife from the Manparai village, Tamil Nadu. When I spoke to her about her situation before she built the toilet, she said that she used to have to wake up before 6 am so that she could walk some distance and relieve herself. After 6 am, there was always the danger that there would be other people on the streets. She built a toilet in her house with a loan from Milaap. She told me that now, there is no need for her to get up that early in the morning. She also has more time to do her morning chores in a leisurely manner.
No more waking up at 6 am to get relieved for Tamilarasi.
