India - Faces - Rural women driving their own change 1

    Newer Older

    Rural women in their richly coloured saris meeting as members of self-help groups (SHGs).

    Within their SHGs, these women now access micro-finance loans, hold their own savings and start successful micro- and small-scale businesses.

    Their newfound confidence and authority shows clearly in their faces and the many questions they ask and how they now drive the change agenda in their villages.

      They are so beautiful...
      I'm glad they are finding ways to succeed.
