An examination of the function of self-help organizations in empowering women with particular reference to Bhiwani district, Haryana

Preeti Sharma

Self-Help Groups have showed the way ahead to minimize this inequality and they provide the tools to bridge the gap between the haves and the have-nots in the globalization period with the growing global difference between the rich and the poor. They help to address the disparity in income among social groups and are evolving into a new method for eradicating poverty. With every day that goes by, self-help groups' reputation as a tool for reducing poverty in society at large grows around the globe. In many countries, including some industrialized nations as well, the role of SHG in eradicating poverty and empowering the poor and weaker sectors has won outstanding acclaim. Aside from this, certain self-help organizations are exclusively founded and run by women, promoting women's empowerment. Due to the self-help groups they had founded, women who had few other means of empowerment began to find themselves in a position to command and demand respect in the business sector. They are no longer on the receiving end of commercial deals because of the scenario they are in right now. In this paper, the role of self-help groups in empowering women is examined, with special reference to the Bhiwani District of Haryana. The results of this study show that while the last item is not significant, the t-values of the first nine items are very significant. It suggests that empowerment success is more apparent at the group level than the individual level.
