Abstract: India is facing a number of challenges in consolidating, saturating and sustaining SHG movement, especially in SBLP. Towards this, the impediments need to be identified and appropriate strategies have to be developed to overcome the identified impediments. The Government promotional efforts need to be supplemented with learning from different states’ experiences and independent assessments and observations of present status of SHG institutions in the country.  Self-help groups (SHGs) and women’s self-help groups (WSHGs) in particular, represent a form of intervention that is a radical departure from most current programmes. Self-help groups are small informal association of the poor created at the grass root level for the purpose of enabling members to reap economic benefits out of mutual help solidarity and joint responsibility. Self-help groups are formed voluntarily by the rural and urban poor to save and contribute to a common fund to be lent to be lent to its members as per group decision and for working together for social and economic uplift of their families and community.  As these self-help groups are effective for eradication of poverty and social empowerment and sustainable empowerment.  The paper will discuss the working of grassroots participatory implementation of self-help groups that is demand driven by ‘beneficiaries’ that, in other projects, often find themselves receiving goods or services in a manner that is opaque and impersonal. Further the paper will evaluate the self-help groups disburse microcredit to the rural women for the purpose of making them enterprising women and encouraging them to inter into entrepreneurial activities. Credit needs of the rural and urban poor women are fulfilled totally thought the SHGs. SHGs enhance equality of status of women as participation, decision-makers and beneficiaries in the democratic, economic, social and cultural spheres of life.  The paper will conclude with the review of literature and how the women are empowered by the micro finance institutions socially and economically protecting their rights with valuable information for implementing agency as well as policy makers to enhance the performance of SHGs and sustainable development of women empowerment.
