Shanta bai, “woman of substance,” (based in Mumbai) is nothing short of an entrepreneur, who has spent her life combining domestic service with micro-enterprises that include a taxi service. She has raised her children and helped raise her grandchildren well, and ensured they have access to better opportunities than she did. Her work and life and that of her family are a striking example of social mobility won with vision, intelligence and physical and emotional stamina, against many odds.
