Micro-enterprise is one of NCM-India’s most active interventions. It is one area in which the government resources are entirely tapped and utilized.
Communities are often crippled by the lack of employment and income generation opportunities and a whole array of social ills stem from the simple fact that a lot of these communities simply do not have the means to make ends meet.
NCM-India empowers communities by enabling them to generate income, earn a livlihood and revitalize their own respective community economies.
We encourage micro-enterprise by establishing self-help groups and by promoting the following projects: petty shops, garlands/phenyl/soaps/bleaching powder/tea/coffee/pickle-making domestic units, fur toys, tailoring, telephone booth, animal husbandry, incense sticks, kichen garden, food items (jam/jelly pickle, masala), candle/bag making, milk delivery, embroidery, vegetables vendors, handloom shawls, bamboo baskets, egg distribution, lending within self-groups to promote internal flow of credit.
The main benefeciaries of NCM-India’s micro-enterprise efforts are the poor and marginalized communities in India. Over 443 self-groups have been set up in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra and West Bengal.
All of the communities we are impacting are the most unreached and underpriviledged locations where women are very needy and fall below the poverty line.
Also, people that are physicaly or socially incapable of generating income normally (i.e. handicapped, women, the blind) are beneficiaries of NCM-India’s micro-enterprise efforts.
