“Not everyone has a government job,” she pointed out, highlighting the primary objective of establishing SHGs: to provide vital support, particularly to village women and housewives lacking alternative financial sources, thereby fostering self-reliance.

She stressed that SHGs not only empower women economically but also serve as platforms for skill development and entrepreneurship. By pooling resources and knowledge within SHGs, members can access financial services and training opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to them individually.

Moreover, she emphasised the role of SHGs in promoting social cohesion and community development. Through collective action, SHGs can address local issues, advocate for their rights, and contribute to the overall welfare of their communities. She encouraged participants to leverage SHGs not just for financial gain but also for broader social impact and sustainable development in their respective areas.

The event, chaired by T. Lochumbeni Tsanglao, Secretary of Tchemeru VLO, Meriyan, commenced with an invocation by Pastor Libenthung Khuvung of Shaki Baptist Church.
