As SHG are small and economically homogenous affinity groups of rural poor, they are voluntarily coming together for achieving the following- To save small amount of money regularly, to mutually agree to contribute a common fund, to meet their emergency needs, to have collective decision making, to solve conflicts through collective leadership mutual discussion, to provide collateral free loan with terms decided by the group at the market driven rates.
The rural poor are in-capacitated due to various reasons such as; most of them are socially backward, illiterate, with low motivation and poor economic base. Individually, a poor is not weak in socio-economic term but also lacks access to the knowledge and information, which are the most important components of today's development process.
