Self Help Group and Microfinance
We started our SHG (Self Help Group) project in Tauru block, Mewat district in the region of Haryana, in 1999. The objective was to use microfinance as a means to empower the local women to set up micro-enterprises, thereby making them independent and respectable members of their communities.

Mariyam - Embodying the new-age woman.
Mariyam is a 45 year old woman from a traditional Muslim community, who, up until recently, wasn't even allowed to step outside her house. Her poor financial and social status led her to stop her eldest daughter's education when she was still in class VIII.
Mariyam joined Deepalaya's SHG in 2006 and attended training programmes on Legal Literacy, Community Sanitation and Domestic Violence. She stepped out from the shadows and became an entrepreneur, setting up two successful businesses. She even provided a stable job to her husband and ensured that all her four children can go to school.
