RAJWATI is a mother of four. Her husband was a daily laborer working in construction. When he had an accident and was injured at work, she was unable to pay the school fees and her two oldest children had to stop studying.

Now her husband is back at work and she is firm that her younger children will finish at least high school. Her children’s education is her first priority. She says, “They have to go to school and they have to study.”

With a loan from Sonata, Rajwati was able to purchase a buffalo and she now sells the milk to pay the school fees. She is planning to buy another buffalo to grow her business, hoping to send her children past high school, “As high as they can go.”
