The system of Self-Help Groups was started 70 years ago. Self-Help Group (SHG) is a small voluntary association of poor people, preferably from the same socio-economic background. They come together for the purpose of solving their common problems through self-help and mutual help. The SHG promotes small savings among its members. A SHG may be registered or unregistered.
