The women collect custard apple which grows in the wild and process the pulp which is then sold. Not just the pulp of custard apple but we also sell the seeds since they are used in insecticides. Premnath Yogi, a field worker of Srijan, a NGO helping the women said, “Ghoomar is managed completely by the women and we just support them. 160 per day while those who collect the fruit are given Rs 10 per kg of custard apples. During season time from October to January close to 23 tonnes of custard apple is processed which is then sold to vendors in places like Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Pali, Jodhpur and others.
