Meet Amritlal Lour

In order to support his wife and two children, Amritlal Lour was reliant on rainfall to feed crops. They often failed until MSS’ lift system allowed him to draw water from the Basin. When MSS supported Amritlal with a drip irrigation system, he grew chilli plants. This provided some income, but it wasn’t until he realised he could plant cucumbers and water melons in between that his income increased so much that he can now pay for his children to go to school – he said: “Now my children have a future, I am very happy.”
