The leader is responsible for holding regular meetings and maintaining records and accounts of the group.
- Collateral Free Loan: SHGs provide small loans to poor individuals for undertaking self-employment projects. Loans are given on the principle of mutual trust and either minimum or no documentation. Generally, the rate of interest is higher than the interest charged by banks. It saves the poor individuals from the clutches of local money lenders. The repayment of loans is ensured timely as all members of the group are responsible for collecting repayment amounts from the members who borrowed the loan.
