Microfinance Group of Women - West Bengal, India

When we drove up to the village of Deep Colony (outside Siliguri, India), a large group of women and children were waiting to greet us. We were quite late, so we hate to think how long they had been waiting…

The women were part of self-help and micro-credit groups. They took us around to see their nursery project.
