ROLE OF SELF HELP GROUPS IN REPRESENTING WOMEN IN SOCIETY
In the rural Indian region, this paper deals with both women's empowerment and their financial security. Since the Indian economy is based on agriculture and agriculture does not guarantee a fixed income, there is no fixed and continuous source of income for a marginal number of people with a rural background to support their family's daily needs. In rural areas, people's jobs are disguised as kind and many people depend on a single source of income or a piece of land. In order to support these people, the government has introduced a micro finance scheme, and the establishment of a self-help group (SHG) is part of the micro finance system. SHGs have proven to be a milestone in empowering women in villages, especially where a group of women (usually between 10 and 20) come together to achieve a financial goal to help each other.
