Examines groups of women who agree to make regular contributions to a fund, which is given in whole or part to each contributor in rotation, a practice with a long tradition especially among people who cannot qualify for credit from banks. Most of the contributors have backgrounds in anthropology and draw on their experience in Africa and Asia and in immigrant groups in Britain and the US. The 16 studies, from a workshop in Oxford, January 1992, focus on the role of the associations in economic development and women's welfare, as well as explain their sometimes complex structures.
