Most women say the reason they need a Self-Employed Women's Association
(SEWA) or a vehicle to save is not that they are incapable of saving, but that they don't have control over that money if it is left in the household.
Chapters 9 and 10 highlight the activities of the Working Women's Forum (WWF) in Madras, and of the Self-employed Women's Association
(SEWA) in Gujarat, which is exclusively involved in mobilising poor women.
