Mukti Increases Members in SHG to Spread across Women Empowerment

Women’s Self-Help Groups (SHGs) have increasingly been used as a vehicle for social, political, and economic empowerment as well as a platform for service delivery. SHGs are “membership-based organizations” whose members provide each other with mutual support while attempting to achieve individual objectives through access to savings and loans and linkages to banks as well as collective objectives through community action. Each SHG typically consists of 10–12 poor women from similar socio-economic backgrounds who live near each other, meet regularly, and save small amounts of money in a common account.


However, these groups are increasingly being leveraged by Mukti as a platform for reaching communities to strengthen rural livelihoods, improve women’s empowerment and agency, increase demand for – and accountability of – public entitlements, and deliver information on health and nutrition.
