(Patna) “We are part of a self-help group. A number of women in our village come together to make baskets, home decor and other items from these straws. We finish our household work and then we sit together to weave.”

(Women in Self-Help Groups: These are stories of women living across Bihar who are affiliated with various self-help groups. Women in small towns and villages gather together to initiate small-scale businesses to improve their socio-economic status.)
