CAPTION: Doddamma is almost completely blind. Her local self-help group (SHG) helped her come together with a small number of other blind women to form an income-generating group. After each contributed an upfront investment to enable them to buy the raw materials they needed, they started making banana leaf bowls to satisfy the demand of street food vendors. LOCATION: Hullepura (village), Kasaba (hobli), Chamrajnagar (district), Karnataka (state), India. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Doddamma.
