SEWA: The Self Employed Women's Association (SEWA) is a trade union formed in 1972. It is both an organisation and a movement with each strengthening and carrying forward the other.The SEWA movement is especially enhanced by its being a 'Sangam' or confluence fo three movements; the labour movement, the co-operative movenment and the women's movement. The poor self-employed SEWA members organise for social change through the path of nonviolence and truth.One of the most important branches of the organization is the SEWA Bank which extends credit to its members and offers the mainly illiterate women the opportunity improve their economic situation by supplying them with services that they would not find at a traditional bank.
