“My father, along with other farmers of the village, worked very hard. For long hours, they would all be digging sweet potato. The difficulties faced by them in using a hand digger disturbed me. I wanted to help my father and other farmers,” says Sebati. She came up with a digger, operated by spring mechanism with a rod, so that using lever mechanism, sweet potatoes can be dug easily.
