Economic Empowerment

Based on the ideal of ‘Self help is the best help’, ACDSSS undertook economic empowerment of the excluded communities through self help groups (SHGs). The SHGs are small groups consisting upto 20 members who meet regularly and take up small savings. The small savings are channelized among the members for productive and consumption purposes. The interest given by members and the seed money given from the banks (after linkage) strengthen community pool of the SHGs. The organisation conducts skills building programs for the members to take up small income generating activities (IGAs) for a sustainable income.

Since the people with whom ACDSSS works are very poor, steps need to be taken for their economic empowerment. ACDSSS is doing so by organizing these poor people into self help groups, building capacities of SHG members, linking SHGs with banks for credit, linking SHGs with block and Swarna Jayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojana (SJGSY), building capacity in income generation activities and making matching grant and revolving funds available to the needy people.

At present 400 SHGs were formed with 2500 members. The group members are using the loan amount for different activities like agriculture, animal husbandry, shop keeping, marriages, medical treatment, house construction, travel, education, etc.

The SHGs have made the easy and soft loans available at the households of the focus people. This has helped them in coming out of the clutches of the village money lenders. The enhanced mobility has raised their confidence level. Access and control over resources had added to their dignity at family and community level.
