Ranjeet lost her husband, Jagjit, to suicide in 2003. Jagjit drank pesticide after being forced to leave his land due to an untenable debt burden made worse by a very low-yield year. He was unable to pay the instalments on the tractor he had purchased a year before. The lenders forfeited his tractor which he needed in order to work his land. Now, Ranjeet makes clay stoves by hand which she sells for 15 RPS (â‚¬0.20) a piece to feed herself and her children. Unless her situation improves, she will be forced to pull her children, Harpreet, 14, and Harbinder, 13, out of school.
