Measuring Women’s Self-Help Group Performance in India

Publisher: TCI-TARINA

The TCI has endeavored to create a metric of group performance that can be used to assess an SHG’s success, resulting in a representative index to score SHG performance. The aim was to ensure that the resulting tool would be flexible and easy to use when comparing multiple SHG typologies and when used by program implementers in multiple contexts. The study draws on the latest theory and current policy environment involving SHGs and is based on primary data on 170 SHGs collected in Odisha over three weeks in the summer of 2015. The study’s major contribution is in treating SHG performance as a multidimensional construct encompassing multiple definitions of SHG success.
