While her husband Kantibhai works as a security guard earning 5000 rupees per month, Sharda had made hundreds of thousands with 2 surrogacies that she did with Akanksha Clinic, which she used to buy land, buffaloes, build washrooms in her house and extend the house. She had also saved a substantial amount to fund her 3 children's educations and make sure that her 2 daughters will find husbands to match their current status.
