Abstract


A study was carried out in Thiruvannamalai district of Tamil Nadu to assess the factors influencing participation of women in Self Help Group Programme of Tamil Nadu. Data pertaining to the objectives of the study were collected from 120 sample respondents using pre-tested interview schedule. Multi-stage random sampling design was used in this study to select a sample of 60 respondents from 10 SHGs and 60 respondents from non-members who rear livestock. Logistic regression analysis was done to find out the determinant factors of participation in self help group programme for women livestock farmers in Tamil Nadu. The findings clearly exposed the factors influencing the participation of women members in SHG programme. Factors like cumulative empowerment score, livestock income, occupation, economic motivation, risk orientation and information seeking behaviour influences the probability participation of women members positively. In contrast, factors like family size decreases the probability of participation on SHG programme.
