After her husband, a farmer, committed suicide, the responsibility of bringing up her two children came on Tarabai Baban Padol from Sonewadi Budruk village, Niphad,  Nashik, Maharashtra. She has three acres of land under irrigation with a well as her source of irrigation. Although agricultural production has been adversely affected during the current cropping season leading to distress among the agrarian community, she is coping well due to her involvement in the BAIF Navjeevan Project. Tarabai cultivates vegetables, wheat, gram and onion. She has taken grapes as a perennial crop for cultivation. She received support of trellis for grape cultivation and also installed the “Y” structure. She earned Rs.3 lakhs during 2016-17 and Rs.5.50 lakhs during 2017-18, making her a happy person who is able to support her family.
