Narmada Ben, an informal worker, carries out important surveys in her neighbourhood slum. She upgraded her skills by attending trainings through the Self Employed Women's Association (SEWA), a trade union for poor, self-employed women in the informal sector, and Mahila Housing Trust (MHT) a NGO that improves the housing conditions of poor, informally employed women. She now earns 180 rupees a day by surveying electricity output in her area using tablet technology, and has helped conduct a city development survey.
