Despite the success of the SHG model, there is little evidence that tracks the intra group dynamics across financial and social interactions. Not many studies have focused on the qualitative aspects of SHGs that covers the behaviour, performance, preferences and aspirations of the group members. The objective of the research from which this report has been derived is to understand the financial and non-financial interactions of SHGs with external agencies as well as to review the group dynamics in terms of financial transactions, decision making, cohesiveness, transparency and acceptance towards technology and new policy.
