Your daily dose of headlines:

The Power of Microfinance: A powerful feature on one 24 year old woman’s rise from poverty to a self-sufficient mother of three —

Three years ago, Jayanthi (24), a young widow, was a pavement dweller. With no roof and a meagre income from her part-time job as a domestic help, Chennai-based Jayanthi could barely provide a proper meal to her three children.
Today, Jayanthi brings home Rs 250 every evening. No longer a maid, she drives her own auto-rickshaw, bought with the help of an interest-free loan. Over the last two-and-a-half-years, she has regularly paid her monthly loan installment of Rs 100… in addition to her children’s fees. All three of them now go to school.
