Sharda Solanki (center), 36, sits with her husband Kantibhai (left), 38, as their daughter Rasmi, 20, makes tea in a house, built using the money Sharda made from her surrogacies, in Anand, Gujarat, India on 9th December 2012. While 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.
