Women Empowerment

 Women are being exploited if the family as well as in society. However, they are the one who does most of the work in the family and in the field. And the general they worked more than their male counterpart (there may be some exceptional cases). Their efforts and contribution have never been recognized. There work considered as sex symbol child producer. For several socio-economic reasons, there is more number of girl’s dropouts than the boys. There are every possibility of mishaps and victimization in many ways since they are not matured, un-educated, economically in wretched condition, it become easy to lure them. As a result they have to pay a heavy penalty of unwanted pregnancy that brings the hazards in present and even in future life. These are some examples.

 Considering the above-mentioned facts, KDDS believes that only women empowerment is the only measures towards same. KDDS extends some protection and social security so that they may exercise rights and avail themselves of all the opportunities and facilities meant to them. Through our survey by the experienced staff, we have identified such people who are at the vulnerable situation. They have been apprised of the susceptibility of their position through awareness camps, large group discussion and seminars with a motto of women empowerment. 

Microfinance an inductive tool of poverty reduction has leads to the empowerment of women relieving them from debt and financial burden. Women in poverty and unsecured household need completely a different set of microfinance mechanism that would substantiate their standard of living. Microfinance services lead to women’s empowerment by positively influencing women’s decision-making power and enhancing their overall socio-economic status. With this macro scenario, Microfinance Institution (MFI), a cooperative movement attempts to eradicate poverty and thereby confer financial and social empowerment of women. An attempt is to explore the reasons why MFIs concentrate on economically poor especially women. This paper reveals that this emerging movement has resulted in women’s increased participation in decision making, gaining self confidence, overcoming gender discriminations and increased political power and rights.

S.G.H. Movement
Almost two-thirds of India's population does not have access to formal financial
services. The women's self help movement emerged as an important strategy for achieving financial inclusion, contributing to inclusive growth, and generating social capital in order to address larger issues like poverty eradication and women empowerment. SHGs are proving to be the most effective instruments for financial inclusion. The experiments started some thirty years ago with NGOs piloting SHG promotion, which has evolved into a national movement--with the proactive role of the state governments-gaining
recognition  from all the major stakeholders. SHGs are also helping to optimize the utilization of the India's vast formal financial institutional structure of about 160,000 institutions in the rural areas through linkages with banks and acting as business correspondents for the banks.
S.G.H. Micro credit Program
For those who are promoting micro-credit through women’s SHGs, the basic assumption is that lack of financial resources to generate livelihoods and income
creates a vicious circle of low incomes, lack of livelihoods and low resources. If ‘cheap’ and easily accessible credit is provided, poverty will be reduced. The poor, particularly women, become actively engaged in the alleviation of their own poverty if they are organized into collectives and assisted to save regularly. Attention has been focused on market-based solutions to alleviate poverty as against state-based solutions (food-for-work, implementation of minimum wages, and increase in employment opportunities). The assumption is that the poor can be assisted to become entrepreneurs and that this is the route to poverty alleviation. 
Micro-credit is a means of enabling the poor to help them to expand entitlements and share responsibilities. The very process of group formation is empowering since a critical mass is formed which can be harnessed to pull

households out of the poverty trap. Micro-credit is therefore seen as a poverty reducing institution, which ‘pays for itself’ and is supposed to benefit both the financial institution and the client. Another basic assumption is that the poor rarely have physical collateral and therefore group activity replaces the need of physical collateral to social collateral. Women also return borrowed money on time. Other side benefits often cited are that micro-credit empowers women since it gives them more economic independence and expands their economic choices; and micro-credit given to women benefits the whole family.
