    ABSTRACT: The microfinance movement has experienced economic transition over more than four decades across the world. In the 1990s several microfinance institutions were forced to change their institutional structures to face competition from for-profit organisations. Most studies focus on the relations between the institutional structures and the performance of these MFIs. However, there is little focus on the relations between the institutional framework and the benefits to the clients. This article aims at understanding how clients in the slums of Mumbai have fared. 1 Introduction

    ABSTRACT: Although the structural reforms, initiated in 1991, did not lead to any appreciable increase in either the efficiency or the export orientation of Indian manufacturing firms, unexpectedly, there has been a visible improvement in manufacturing design capabilities in certain segments, for instance, in the motor vehicle sector. The paper suggests that the development of “frugal engineering”—an approach of “frugality” in resolving complex design problems—is a real advance. It suggests, further, that this approach developed from the experiences of the procedures laid down in the phased manufacturing programme of the 1950s, and first found expression in the successful forays into some specific export markets by Indian vehicle manufacturers in the late 1970s and 1980s. Although this design expertise cannot solve the problems of manufacturing efficiency, particularly across the wider industrial sphere, it indicates that Indian firms have the expertise to resolve problems related to the manufacturing sphere if strategic goals are appropriately set by managers.
