Mrs. Pichaiamma - Tholur village

“Having availed toilet loan changed my lifestyle” says Mrs. Pichaiammal. With two daughters of age 16 and 7 respectively, of whom younger one is deaf and dump besides an elderly mother having knee problem and could not walk long distances, she managed to compromise with risks involved in practicing open defecation. Accompanying with them for relieving themselves is a regular problem. While most of the households in Nadu Tholur village in Mohanur block have availed toilet loans and constructed toilets, it was a nightmare for Pitchaiammal to have own toilet as she had already experienced with inadequate earning through daily wages. At last, she decided to have own toilet from Guardian loan at any cost. She availed and constructed a toilet which is being used by the family members without expecting her support. Now she could concentrate more on livelihood promotional activities.
