Who is the Informal Woman Worker ?

64% of GDP is accounted for by the self-employed of our country. They are poor, illiterate, marginalized and are one of the most vulnerable sections of the society. They barely have any assets or working capital. The struggles faced by the women in such sectors are greater in magnitude than that of men. Women working in the informal economy have no fixed employee-employer relationship and depend on their own labor for survival.  Despite such odds, they are extremely economically active, contributing significantly to the economy and society with their labor. SEWA supports the formation of member-based organizations thereby securing their social, economic and legal rights.
