However, post the the pandemic hit, the group had faced financial challenges. In the words of Belinda Kharsati, she was facing issues and challenges due to pandemic as the demand for the tomatoes in the market came down, which depreciated the price of the produce. Not only this, with no market demand, she was not able to sell her produce that perished the produce.
