Sibitri and her buffalo

Sibitri and her buffalo
Sabitri lives in Kavre with her daughter. She took a loan to buy 4 buffalo, and now sells 80 pints of buffalo milk per day. She also sells the manure, but keeps enough to run her own mini-biogas plant, which converts the methane from the manure into fuel. She pipes it into her home to power her gas burner.
