Abstract

This study delves into the transformative potential of Self-Help Groups (SHGs) in fostering rural development within the Kiphire Sadar and Seyochung Circle of Kiphire District, Nagaland. Empowering Communities is at the heart of this investigation, seeking to unravel the intricate dynamics between SHGs and rural development outcomes. Through a mixed-method approach, combining both primary and secondary data sources, this research aims to shed light on the tangible impacts of SHGs on various facets of rural life, including economic, social, and institutional dimensions. Utilizing a purposive sampling technique, a selection of villages from the aforementioned circles served as the focal points for data collection. Extensive field surveys, supplemented by informal interviews with SHG members and key stakeholders, formed the basis of data acquisition. The subsequent analysis employs a range of statistical tools and techniques to discern patterns, challenges, and opportunities associated with SHG interventions. By examining the role of SHGs in enhancing livelihoods, fostering social cohesion, and catalyzing community-driven initiatives, this study endeavors to contribute to a deeper understanding of grassroots empowerment strategies in the context of rural Nagaland.
