Unique Livelihood Convergence Models

The uniqueness of the Odisha Model of SHG development is the convergence of women’s entrepreneurship with Government Programmes. In its first meeting on 29th May 2019, the Cabinet approved a proposal to tie up women SHGs with different Department initiatives for provisioning of government services and procurement of goods in a structured manner amounting to Rs 5,000 crore over five years. Such convergence aims at deepening the engagement of lakhs of women with Government programmes at the grassroot level, ensuring last mile delivery of services while providing additional and sustainable livelihood opportunities to women SHGs.
