quite thought provoking article. If I my offer one correction. Credit Union model is not new to Canada. Though, perhaps, the sex workers credit union is indeed something that sex workers have formed in Kolkota/ India and running it very successfully. It is a trade association that also looks after its members rights and interests. This experiment is very different from what Prof Yunus did in Bangladesh (Grameen Bank). That bank is not a credit union. Credit union by definition is members controlled and governed, and for people working in marginal trades such as sex-workers, it can be a powerful institution for both financial services provision, but also for advocacy and protecting rights. thanks.
