“If you don’t give up on something you truly believe in, you will find a way.” ― Roy T. Bennett
I am Lataben, from Konjdi village, Gujarat and I have been single-handedly raising my kids ever since I lost my husband in 2014. I received immense resistance from my in-laws when I demanded my #land rights after his death. I worked as #farm labour to support my family but my income was not sufficient to meet my family requirements. It was very difficult for me to even arrange two-time meal for my kids. It was only in 2019, when I got associated with Utthan (Gujarat-based NGO) and with their support, was able to get my rightful share of land in the family landholding. After I got my share, I helped 10 other women to gain their land rights.
Facilitated by Utthan, I formed a #farmer group with other women farmers in the village and got registered with ATMA (Agriculture Technology Management Agency). Due to my leadership qualities, I was selected for demonstrating a #sustainable package of practices in cotton in the Kharif season by the Village Development Committee. I applied improved farming practices in my field and was able to double my income in one cropping season.
Out of my earnings, I paid off a debt and bought an insurance policy for my children. I am currently an Intensive Master Trainer and have trained 40 women farmers to date. I also receive an additional support of INR 2000 per month for knowledge sharing. I actively helped in sourcing grains for ration kits provided by Utthan during the #COVID pandemic and assisted with door-to-door distribution of these kits.
With my journey, I have been able to inspire many women farmers today to carve out their own destinies. Looking back, I believe “we should not get afraid by the hardships and have confidence in our ability to do the best possible job”
I am Lataben. It’s my identity…This is my story!”…#EkNaam

Spoke to an @apollotyresltd Zone dealer, checked out the tyres, the whole buying experience was super smooth and safe! look and sound promising! Got them installed. Now let's see if they fulfill the promise! #TestTheAlphaChallenge#KTM390#covid19#ktm#ktmriders#ktmduke390#womenwhoride
