This is the third story featuring the role of aquaculture and fisheries in the livelihoods of people who are poor in Eastern India. This story describes how women who could no longer make a living from weaving turned to aquaculture. Success came, not just through income generation but by reducing the cost of being poor, by achieving access to more financial products like life insurance and savings. The story highlights the influences that constrain and enhance development, including the value of social capital, the struggle for entitlements, and the sheer bravery and entrepreneurial spirit of people who are poor.
