The SHGs mobilized in marine fisheries sector plays pivotal role in reducing the indebtedness among the fisher folk. Field survey conducted in the fishing village of Therespuram for collecting information about constraints in SHGs. Garratt’s ranking technique is used to identify and rank the attributes on the constraints in SHGs. Different types of constraints are analyzed here, such as production constraints, performance constraints, financial constraints, marketing constraints, cohesion constraints and extension constraints. Result obtained from the study revealed that lack of adequate knowledge leads to production and extension constraints; lack of encouragement is the main reason for cohesion constraints; lack of funds is the first constraint in finance and performance of SHGs and lack of marketing skill is the marketing constraint. So urgent attentions has to be given for the knowledge development programs, encouragement activity, training programs, source of funds and development of marketing skills. This will help to improve the business and thereby earn economic profit by fisherwomen in SHGs.Pages: 217-220 | 764 Views 23 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
