In India, many women factory workers struggle with health-related issues due to a lack of access to relevant health knowledge and health facilities. Breast
cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths. Younger women are affected at higher rates than in developed countries. A lack of organized awareness
programs, preventive measures, breast cancer screening programs for early detection, scarcity of diagnostic aids, and general indifference toward the health
of females are leading to increased cases of breast cancer.
In India, women disproportionately lack access and control over financial resources and have limited awareness of the various financial products and services
available to them. While women are interested in financial education, sources of information are limited. This leads to women not being able to plan for the
future, save for emergencies, or properly keep track of their expenses. Women have very little influence in financial-decision making at the household, and
often grant control of their salary to a male family member.
