Income Generating Program for Self-Help-Groups.

In Manipur, the role of rural women in solving socio-economic problems is worth appreciation. They involve in all the activities of livelihood. However, they do not have any capital to start any venture. The credit needs of poor women, particularly those in the unorganized sector, have not been address adequately by the formal financial institutions in the state. Thus, it is needful for a quasi-informal credit delivery mechanism with minimal and simple procedures, disperses quickly and repeatedly, has flexible repayment schedules, links thrift and savings with credit and has low transaction costs for the borrower and lender. With this in mind, this society started formation of Self Help Groups (SHG’s) of rural poop women in Oinam and its surrounding area from April, 2000. So far 28 SHG’s consisting of around 500 members are benefited out of this scheme.

However, there is no market support neither from the Government nor from any organizations. As a result cocoon and silk yarn producers could not get remunerative prices for their products. To overcome this situation and also to support the producers of the district, this organization has started marketing support activities since 2009-10 and continued till date. So far, this financial assistance will be operated as non-eroding fund of the society for the purpose.
