We are now in India on an exciting study tour on livelihood development and infrastructure development. So far, we have visited Kudumbashree and Jalnidhi in Kerala, and SERP in Andhra Pradesh, and learned the following:
1. SHGs can be a platform to improve rural livelihoods and as a source of security. In particular we were impressed by women’s banks which provide 6,000 women an improved access to finance, insurance, pension and other services, and knowledge on financial literacy.
2. We also saw farmers organize village level enterprises that federate to increase the scale of production, improve their access to market, finance and knowledge and enhance productivity. We also saw private firms provide farmers access to finance, insurance and technical advice. We saw other models too. All these different models can potentially generate significant benefits to broad rural population.
3. We have seen projects support communities for sustainable management of water schemes by establishing and developing the capacity of water beneficiary groups including on setting up cost recovery user fees and installing individual water meters.
More to come. We keep debating among ourselves how to apply this new knowledge in Azerbaijan, including how to support women more. Stay tuned!
