Self-reliant groups are collectives of women -there are some men but it is mostly women- coming together to save, make loans to each other and support enterprise. It is hard to keep count, but there are around 10 million of these groups worldwide. In this episode, Karen from Johnstone in Scotland and Indira from Rotterdam meet each other online for the first time, and discuss their respective groups and how they have adapted to life after lockdown.
