She bought one with the help of “aunties” in whose houses she used to work as a help. Now, she earns between Rs 500 and Rs 600 a day.

“I had three children to support. I saw e-rickshaws plying on the road and decided to purchase one 10 months ago. I took a loan from the “aunties” in whose houses I worked in as a help. My brother taught me how to operate the vehicle for a few weeks. Then, I started ferrying the “aunties” around for practice. Now I work from 7 am to 6 pm and have enough money to support my family,’’ Meena  says.

Apart from the basic lessons her brother gave her, Meena has had no formal training in driving any kind of vehicle. “The first week was tough. To drive on congested roads is difficult. So I now stick to a known route,” she says.( find from The Indian Express )
