Abstract

The growing commercialization of rural economy, increasing dependence of agriculture on external inputs, mobilizations of savings towards construction and the growing education have opened up new vistas for the micro-enterprise development in India. Self Help Groups (SHGs) have speeded up the process through credit availability and training. Many successful stories created demonstration effect among the participants. Improved fund availability and savings encouraged women micro entrepreneurs to take up new projects and to create more employment opportunities in rural areas. Present research study will work on impact evaluation of SHGs in the research area.
