Women Empowerment Program 2009 – 10

Wheeling into empowerment

NERSWN started a Women’s Cycle Bank to reduce women vendors’ dependence on men and to give them the freedom of mobility. The bank provides vendors a loan to purchase a bicycle, which they get to repay in monthly installments. The true inspiration for this project has been the joy it brought to the first few women vendors who tried it, which is surprising in this age when bicycles have become the least preferred mode of transport.
