Bali Devi, who is around 50 years old, used to run a small makeshift shop in the front of her home in Jaipur. The small kutcha house was home to her two sons, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. Devi dreamt of better living standards, but getting a loan from any formal lending institution was unthinkable given the temporary and informal employment of her household. However, today she lives in a pucca house, with a newly constructed floor, rented out a room to another family and made her makeshift shop a little bigger and better.
