B. MICRO CREDIT:
Our Organization is providing micro-credit to several Self Help Groups with the financial help of Rashtriya Mahila Kosh, Govt. of India in the area. The most of the beneficiary were women who are now determined to complete the project as per their own scheme. Micro credit plays an important role in fighting the multi-dimensional aspects and increases livelihood of children. We have also explained the SHGs that it is also a means for self-empowerment. It enables the poor, especially women so that they increase income and become business owners and reduce their vulnerability to external shocks, illness etc. for doing this we had organized training programmes and ensured that all SHGs’ members know the importance of micro-credit.
