Empowerment occurs within sociological, psychological economic spheres and at various levels, such as individual, group and community.  Empowering women puts the spotlight on education and employment which are an essential element to sustainable development. One of the powerful approaches to women empowerment and entrepreneurship is the formation of Self Help Groups (SHGs) especially among women’s SHG is conceived as a sustainable people’s institution that provides the poor women with space and support necessary for them to take effective steps towards achieving greater control of their lives.
