Ratna Refida has created a process for providing community based housing for the poor in rural areas. Her aim is to create rural settlements that are adequately supportive to residents so that they will feel less need to migrate to cities. These rural settlements are designed to provide housing, a healthy environment for children, and income generation opportunities for the families.
