Maku Hansda is a woman of Kalipur Ranga village and her husband is Lukhiram Besra before the project intervention they use to work as a daily wage labour and maintaining family expenses with hard time. The agriculture activities were done in very traditional basis and productions were not sufficient for one year. The crops they use to cultivate were paddy and maize beside these little bits of vegetable for self-consumption. They never thought that through vegetables crops cultivation can tune the life pattern.

She joined in SHG in the year of 2013 and nominal group collection was done by the village women but the women group was limited with consumption loan rather than production. But by the help of PRAVAH organization cash crops cultivation was initiated with the farmers and women were the lead player. In the year 2015-16 cash crops production was introduced by PRAVAH with package of practice (POP). In the year 2020-21 Pravah organization constructed Lift irrigation system for the village community for the purposes of irrigation.
