Ikkuru village, Narasaraopeta India
Mr Anjaiah has a petty shop at Ikkuru Village where he sells miscellaneous items for a living. Initially, he admitted his child in a government school, but because he would have to go into town to buy the items for his shop, he was unable to drop his child to school regularly. As a result, his studies suffered.
On partnering with WHIN, he now sells 1/2 and 1 liter bottles of Dr. Water to travelers, auto drivers and the likes. With these booming water sales, Anjaiah was able to reinvest in and expand his business. This has enabled him to reduce his visits to town. He now has the time to drop his son to school. More importantly, he has generated enough disposable income to enroll his son in a much better private, English medium school.
