Abstract : In India, about 65% of the population resides in rural areas and have minimal access to employment opportunities. This pose uphill barriers for effectual rural development. With 33 million Indians unemployed, coupled with about 14% of rural women unemployed (as of 2019), livelihood options for rural women are a matter of grave concern. Similar is the situation faced by women residing in Indpur, a rural village in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. As part of the Live-in-Labs® program, a study was conducted following the principles of Human Centered Design (HCD), for the appraisal of challenges to livelihood opportunities, supervening the Indpur community. The HCD concept is further exploited to propose a sustainable technological proposition in the form of Aqueous Enzymatic Extraction of oil from Moringa seeds.
