Synopsis

Multiple Meanings of Money: How Women See Microfinance analyses what microfinance and money mean to women; focusing on the perspectives of individual women and of women-only groups. It explores women's money management strategies, group dynamics and learning processes in groups. It discusses the divergence in the perspectives of external intervening agencies and those of women who are members of self-help groups (SHGs). Based on case studies and participatory research methods, the discourse spans issues from macro to micro level and focuses on women as agents of change in their own livelihoods.



The book will be an asset for professionals working in the sectors of microfinance and gender issues, as well as for policy makers. It will be equally useful for those studying and engaged in social work.
