Abstract

The elementary aim of microenterprises and Self Help Groups (SHGs) is to empower the impoverished populace, particularly of the rural areas, and furthermore provide financial sustainability so as to improve livelihoods. The pervasive twin threats of unemployment and exclusion from the financial framework in the rural areas are the major challenges to the economic and social development of India. A self-help group is a potent means to remove poverty in the same vein microenterprises contribute significantly to economic development and social stability by affording employment opportunities, thereby emerging as a vehicle through which low-income people can escape poverty. SHGs and microenterprises are a significant means for socio-economic transformation through financial inclusion. The objective of the chapter is to study and analyze the impact of microenterprises and SHGs on the financial inclusion of people in rural areas of Tribal South Rajasthan.
