She also said that after having so many children, all the money she got covered all the expenses of raising and taking care of them. She said, “The truth is, as the government helps me with each child, I receive a little money for each one."

Martha explained that she gets 76 dollars for the eldest child and 30.50 dollars for her youngest ones, for a total of 510 dollars, which is approximately 42,359.27 INR. She also gets support from her neighbours and the church. And she accused the fathers of the children of being irresponsible.

This family currently lives in a three-bedroom house, which is very challenging because the eldest child sleeps on the sofa. And sometimes she struggles to provide adequate food to everyone on this limited budget. Despite all these struggles, Martha said she will continue to have kids because it is profitable for her.
