The role that Micro Finance Institutions (MFIs) play as lending agencies has been an issue of deep concern that AIDWA,
as an organization upholding the rights of the underprivileged, working women of this country, has been raising for some
years now. This publication seeks to bring together the understanding and work of AIDWA, and the experiences derived from different states in the course of addressing the problems associated with micro finance lending. It is a compilation of
articles, surveys and reports with a few case studies which reveal the extent to which this issue affects women across the
country, and highlights the importance of constant intervention by organizations like AIDWA to protect the rights of ordinary women.
