To enhance the participation of women in agriculture and allied fields, Government of India has implemented several developmental programmes.The Swarnjayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY) is implemented in Kerala to assist poor families (Swarozgaries) living below the poverty line by ensuring appreciable sustained income through micro enterprises. The present study was conducted in 7 Panchayats in the Ernakulam district of Kerala. Majority (88%) started the new micro enterprise in 2008 and 12 per cent in 2010. About 60 per cent of the group seek technical advice on financial transactions from the funding agency/ Micro Financial Institutes (MFIs) and 40 per cent groups take own decisions. All the groups conduct meetings either weekly or monthly for discussing their records on the sales. Decision making in the group is by all the members.
