Neeta is currently a garment worker and packing professional at MSA Ethos. Neeta and her family were given housing on the premises of MSA Ethos as Neeta's husband used to be a driver for MSA, allowing them to qualify for campus housing. MSA has a strict policy against alcoholism, a disease salient in the villages surrounding the ashram. Neeta's husband was caught drinking on the job and was asked to immediately resign and move off the premises of MSA with his family. MSA Ethos stepped in to prevent Neeta and her family from being evicted from their home, as Neeta is a loyal, honest, and wonderful worker at MSA Ethos. She is also the primary earner for her family, and cares deeply for her son, who she has sent to live with her parents to shield him from potential negative influences of his father. Neeta believes that woman in the work place is a rare occurrence as many community members look down on women in the work place. She's hopeful this will eventually change for the better.
