Presents the creation, development and range of activities of Annapurna Mahila Mandal, a cooperative organization of women known as khanawalwali (food women), who make their living cooking for male workers. Once recently nationalised banks were mandated to give one per cent of their loans to the underprivileged, Annapurna began as a credit cooperative by facilitating loans to these women and eventually expanded to providing employment opportunities and other services to women in need.
