Anita Pawra (33) lives in Sawaryadigar village of Maharashtra’s Nandurbar district, a village of about 2,200 people. Nandurbar is among India’s 112 most under-developed districts. Little did Pawra know that one day she would be financially independent, the owner of a poultry business, and the elected head of a women’s self-help group (SHG), all because she had joined such an organisation nine years earlier.

SHGs are informal associations of people who come together to find ways to improve their life. These self-governed, peer-controlled groups follow their own set of rules.
