The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) launched its pilot phase of the Self Help Group (SHG) in February 1992 in Indiato help the poor rural people in providing credit. SHGs are small groups formed by a group of rural women informally to generate support and economic benefit, sense of responsibility among themselves and these groups not only create the financial inclusion but also up bring the social participation of women which in turn increase the empowerment of women and decrease the social exclusion at a larger extent.
