|Title:||FUNCTIONING AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS OF WOMEN IN SELF HELP GROUPS|
Self Help Groups
|Publisher:||TISS Guwahati Campus|
|Abstract:||Women are vital part of an economy. In India, they constitute one third of national labour force. To organize them in groups and associations for their betterment and development is very essential. So they come together to mutually help each other which will indirectly lead to empowerment. Empowerment of women is a statutory precondition for developing one economy as well as eliminating poverty. The concept of SHG has brought tremendous changes in the lives of women especially at the grass root level in India. It has played a crucial role in boosting their self-confidence, enhancing their capacity and skills, strengthening their earning ability and promoting regular savings. It also paves a way to eradicate unemployment and illiteracy and helps in capital formation. Women thus can access to credit easily, have increased decision making power in the family, increased mobility and improved legal and political knowledge.|
