This is the story of Ms. Chinna Pillai, popularly known as Madurai’s Iron Lady. This inspiring woman is a champion of uplifting women by fighting poverty in her village Pullucheri. Her simple idea of a micro-credit banking system spread across Indian villages and won her India’s fourth-highest civilian honour – the Padma Shri (2019). Fun fact: The former Prime Minister of India Shri. Atal Bihari Vajpayee bowed down and touched her feet, overwhelmed by her work in 1999.
