Despite being significant contributors to India’s economic growth, women in the informal sector remain outside of traditional forms of financial institutions and services. They mostly rely on informal forms of finance, such as loan sharks, family members, and neighbours. Loan sharks and informal financial services often put families at risk of exorbitantly high interest rates and loss of essential assets, such as land, housing, and savings. Women who are unable to pay back their loans spiral into a cycle of debt, further perpetuating poverty traps and contributing to the economic and social stagnation of families and communities. In the majority of the cases, credit remains difficult to avail or the transaction costs for borrowing and using saving facilities remain high. In such situations, access to services, such as savings accounts and loans, are critical to protecting, managing, and growing assets. It, thus, becomes imperative to empower these women as independent financial actors by giving them resources to save, invest, and protect their earnings.
