Hand crafted horses
Horsing her way through!
45 years old
Kalakaar Colony, Shastri Nagar, Jaipur
Heena has used most of her loan money from Arth to improve her standard of living. She bought a gas stove and paid her electricity bills with the loan money. She says, “I can’t find wood for lighting the chulha. I can’t spend the whole looking for wood. I might also fall ill because of the smoke. How will I take care of my children, if I am unwell? One of my sons has already gone astray in this locality. My husband has not been very supportive, too.”
She earns INR 200-500 per day making horses out of cloth and gota and pays her loan on time. Life is difficult for her, but she horses through every day!
