Author(s) Ranjan Kumar

Abstract This study explores the role of Self-Help Groups (SHGs) in poverty alleviation within Gaya District, Bihar, utilizing data sourced from the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Rural Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NRLM), Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India. Employing a mixed-methods approach, quantitative analysis of SHG membership trends is complemented by qualitative insights gathered through interviews and focus group discussions with SHG members and stakeholders. Quantitative analysis involves examining data on new and total SHG members across 24 blocks within Gaya District over the past five years. Comparative analysis identifies variations in membership rates among blocks, while geospatial analysis, facilitated by Geographic Information System (GIS) software, visualizes SHG membership distribution. Qualitative insights provide contextual understanding of socio-economic factors influencing SHG participation. Integrated analysis synthesizes findings, elucidating SHG dynamics and their impact on poverty alleviation efforts. Results reveal a notable increase in SHG membership, with approximately 7.88% of the total population joining SHGs in the last five years. Challenges such as inclusivity and access to resources are identified. This study contributes valuable insights to the discourse on SHG effectiveness in poverty alleviation, informing policy formulation and program implementation for sustainable development and poverty reduction in Bihar.
