For the purpose of the study ten sample women SHGs were selected through PPS (Probability Proportional to Size) sampling method. The study was descriptive in nature relied both on quantitative and qualitative data. On the basis of the findings it is concluded that majority of SHGs were rated good in organizational capacity and financial management capability, rated as moderate in savings and credit capability, awareness capability and in plans and visions capability and rated weak in micro-enterprise development capability, skill development capability, empowerment and influences capability and networks and linkages capability. The overall capability of majority of the SHGs were rated as moderate. Therefore, extensive effort and support are required to improve the capability of the SHGs. Continuous trainings on capability building, skill development, personality development, leadership development, achievement-motivation training, technical training orientation and entrepreneurial skills development etc are needed to help them to enhance their capability and mind-sets. Both the government and private agencies have to play a coordinated role with an integrated approach for making the movement of women SHGs development a success.
