India - Faces - Rural women driving their own change 1

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.
