Access, Redressal & Finance in Uttar Pradesh

The Future of Finance Initiative at Dvara Research and Khabar Lahariya, the award-winning rural digital journalism platform, bring to you a six-part video series on “Access, Redressal & Finance in Uttar Pradesh”. With a focus on the rural and small-town geographies of Bundelkhand in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, in this series we attempt to map consumer journeys in finance: from understanding people’s needs, and the realities of access and redress in finance amongst the different communities identified in Uttar Pradesh. These stories of evidence will also unpack how gender, caste and income levels impact the access for various groups, examining the structural barriers often sustained by socio-cultural practices and mindsets.
