This study aims to assess the social and economic transition brought out by Self Help Groups in the lives of the members who have emerged mainly to marginalise the moneylenders and to enhance the income earning capacity of the poor But they have emerged stronger than expected and contributed a lot in asserting human rights and human development They have become part and parcel of the rural community They have been scaled up with the active facilitation by government and nongovernment organisations The rural India at present is interlaced with a thickening web of such grassroot organisations They are increasingly intertwined not only with each other but with the state The present study is a micro level study of SHGs confined to selected Panchayat Unions in Sivagangai District As such its findings may not have application at macro level The study is limited to Women entrepreneurs associated with women Self Help Groups The study is limited to the period of one year from January 2008 to January 2009 newline%%%
