Self Reliance Groups Case Studies
Great efforts have been made by Human Development Initiative projects in strengthening the organizational management and accountability, financial management, capacity building and networking skills of SRGs. The study clearly showed that the socio-economic condition of SRG members has improved – to different degrees based on their individual and family’s capacity to effectively utilize the financial resource, in combination with the human and physical resources available to them. The achievement of individual SRG members’ aspirations have been met to a varying degree among member households of SRGs. Group visions regarding establishment of group businesses or village development projects are gradually being realized once the group accumulates enough common funds both for circulating loans among the members and to implement their dreams.
