Two women are talking. One wants to do a favour to the other, and this one says to the first one it is not necessary. Now, referring to the reaction of the generous woman, the text says:
It was her turn to tilt her head at the needy woman.
Please, what does tilt her head at mean?

If I understand the scenario: the poor woman has refused what the wealthy woman wanted to give her. This would perplex the wealthy women. So she tilts her head, as if to say, "Now, why wouldn't you accept what I want to give you?"
I am not sure if that's what you are asking. More information would have helped.
I think susie is right.
On another note:
1) one wants to give a favor to the other
2) one wants to do a favor to the other
These both sound wrong. I'd say "one wants to do a favor for the other".
