Rural Women's Development and Empowernment Project

Rural Women’s Development and Empowerment Project


This project builds on the Tamil Nadu Women’s Development Project, which targeted women exclusively and introduced microfinance schemes as a principal instrument for women’s empowerment. Cofinanced by the World Bank, this project aims to promote women’s economic development, while creating an environment favourable to social change as a way of improving women’s living conditions.

In 35 districts in Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh states, IFAD supports project activities that establish self-help groups and improve their access to and control over resources. The project promotes the development of income-generating activities and access to basic financial services, as well as access to health care, education and other services.
