Pinki Devi

Kochla village, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.
Pinki Devi is a member of a microfinance self-help group established by Seva Mandir, a non-profit organization. Her group is one of the best-run in the district. The bars in seen in the photo are actually to keep out pesky monkeys, but the initial jail-like imagery represents the struggle of rural Indian women. Rural women do half of the farm work and all of the domestic work, but only receive a fraction of the household income.
