      Roopa Bernardiner & Mangala S.M
Abstract: Economic empowerment is a major step towards the goal of equal participation of women in household and community, and to challenge socially unfair stereotype practices through women’s Self Help Groups (SHGs). Economic empowerment of poor women could be achieved through improvement in their ability in accessing and controlling individual household economic resources and assets such as income, savings land, housing, and livestock. To sustain the economic empowerment it is crucial that the process of social empowerment should begin simultaneously by developing a sense of independence, self-confidence among women. Taking either individual and or group actions, to address social issues that are prevailing at household, community and institution levels, will improve capabilities in attaining education, sense of ownership, sense of belonging,leadership and their capacity to seek a better future. Collectively, women are enabled to address challenges and constraints and in the process achieve empowerment. This paper tries to examine the impact of SHGs collective with respect to empowerment of women based on the first-hand information.
