Banking in India’s Hinterland

Author Name: Moin Qazi | Format: Paperback | Genre : Business, Investing & Management | Other Details

"Banking in India’s Hinterland" isn't your typical how-to guide. Instead, it's a compelling account of the author's experiences as a rural banker in India. Through personal stories, the book sheds light on the struggles of impoverished communities, particularly the strength and resilience of poor rural women.

The author argues there's no one-size-fits-all solution to poverty. He emphasizes the need for local experimentation and a deep understanding of local contexts. His core belief lies in gradual change and empowering the poor, especially women, through financial resources and education.

The book offers a hopeful message. The author, based on his three decades of experience, believes poverty can be tackled by equipping the underprivileged with the tools they need to break free from the cycle.
