American philanthropist Melinda French Gates visited a village in Delhi during her India trip and interacted with the residents there amid her packed schedule.

French Gates was Garhi village in the national capital on Wednesday, where she interacted with India Post Payments Bank customers and its elderly women pensioners.


She also used digital payment app Patym to make a purchase at a kirana or a local store. In a video shared on social media by Gates Foundation India, the billionaire was seen holding a plastic bottle of mineral water in one hand. In the other hand, she held up a phone and scanned Paytm’s QR code placed in front of the shop.
