FAILURE OF SHGs….WHY?
During my field work in Toranmal village of Nandurbar district of Maharashtra, I came across a very strange situation i.e. a complete failure of SHGs related to many livelihood opportunities in the village due to one reason or the other. When I talked to the people working in the organization looking after the village projects, they said that SHGs are working properly in the nearby villages but they are not working in this village. This was an example of failure of collective action or a village failure to cooperate. I am still searching for the reasons. Please help me out.
