Ramabai lives with her two boys, Sitaram and Radhe, in Madhya Pradesh. The sole breadwinner due to her husband’s untimely death, she struggles to make ends meet. Working as a wage laborer, she wishes to provide the best education to her sons and is prepared to fight her way through anything.
To make her living conditions better, Ramabai decided to seek help for resuming construction of her house under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. It had come to a halt due to some pending payment after her husband’s death.
DEF’s Samarth Soochnaprenuer Deshraj Singh Rajput assisted her in filling out an application to avail the government scheme and also advised her to apply for a widow pension. Soon she started receiving a pension of INR 1000 per month which made life much easier. Her housing issue was soon resolved and Ramabai now has a roof over her head.
Thanking Samarth Soochnaprenuer Deshraj, she said, “Life throws challenges at everyone and I am no different, but help from people can turn around anything. Samarth Soochnaprenuer has shown me how I can be Samarth despite hardships.”
