Matai is a humble lady standing to the extreme left in the photograph. She hails from an interior village of Umerkote, Odisha, India. She has a joint family and resides with her husband and in-laws.
Matai is a farmer by profession and sells milk in her locality in order to sustain her livelihood. The major problem that concerns her is that she does not have an appropriate toilet in her house and has to depend upon the open field to attend nature's call. This makes her more vulnerable to crime and molestation.
So in order to restore her privacy and increase her safety and hygiene, she, along with her other group members, is requesting a loan amount of 45,000 INR. She will use her portion of the loan amount to build a hygienic toilet in her home and safeguard her family's health so as to reduce the medical expenses.
