President Chávez has said: "To abolish poverty we must give power to the poor." Women, who are 70% of the poor, have made themselves the starting point of change. The extraordinary Womens Development Bank (Banmujer) is part of the process of revolutionizing Venezuela's economy: promoting grassroots self-activity backed by the oil revenue. Its president, Nora Castañeda, describes how Banmujer is providing a path-breaking framework for building a movement which is "creating an economy at the service of human beings."
