Abstract:

The present study on entrepreneurship development among rural women was conducted in selected villages of Bangalore rural district in Karnataka state. The selected villages were Heggadehalli of Doddballapur taluk and Venkatahalli of Devanahalli taluk during the year 2013-14. The data was collected from the 200 rural women using semi structured interview schedule. The collected data was analysed using appropriate statistical tools. The results of the study revealed that, the total production of finger millet malt for two years was 12,288 kg, followed by hurihittu 3,456 kg and malt chocolate 144 kg. The cost for finger millet malt at household level was Rs. 4,74,316 (Rs. 38.6/kg), hurihittu Rs. 3,28,320 (Rs. 95/kg) and malt chocolate Rs. 39,456 (Rs. 274/kg). The total selling cost of finger millet malt was Rs. 9,83,040 (Rs. 80/kg), hurihittu Rs. 51,8,400 (Rs. 150/kg) and malt chocolate 64,800 (Rs. 450/kg), with net profit of Rs. 35,961 from the three products. Majority of the SHG members marketed the value added products through retail shops, medical shops, Krishimela, field days, exhibitions and by direct sales. Initially majority of the rural SHG women were in medium income group (54%) followed by 36 per cent in low income group and only 10 per cent were in high income group. Noticeable improvements was observed after the intervention programme i.e., 62 per cent of them were in medium income group, 24 per cent in high income group and only 14 per cent were low income group (Rs. <2,000).
