Microfinance Self-Help Groups in India
For the first time, detailed field research probes beneath the surface of world-renowned SHGs. It explores both social and financial performance in the SHG movement. This text reveals that whilst there are important achievements, especially on the social side, without more strategic attention and more resources these are unlikely to be sustainable.
