The seminar will examine how the Indian microfinance industry leverages “success stories” of women clients to legitimize the unfair terms on which working class women are drawn into India’s microfinance industry.

Professor Radhakrishnan is author of Making Women Pay: Microfinance in Urban India (Duke University Press 2022) and Appropriately Indian: Gender and Culture in a Transnational Class (Duke University Press 2011).
