Literacy amongst females is constantly increasing in India. The 2001-2011 decadal period saw a positive and faster growth in female literacy rates (11.8%) as compared to males (6.9%). As the literacy amongst women is increasing, their need to become financially more secure has also got an upsurge. Adarsh Credit thus encourages women and educates them about several financial services available.
The rural women of our country are still not aware about various ways available to secure their financial future. They are willing to invest in a better future.But due to lack of knowledge of financial services, they are left uninformed about different ways to start a better life. Adarsh Credit Co-operative Society Ltd. understands this very well and hence, decided to motivate women to save for their better tomorrow.
An Initiative for Women Empowerment
We, at Adarsh Credit Co-operative Society Ltd have engaged with over 300 Anganwadi women and educated them about the features and benefits of savings schemes. These women were earlier unaware about several opportunities available but, yearned to be independent and financially secure. So, we have made it our mission to assist them towards building a secure tomorrow. The meetings held in several rural areas of Gujarat saw immense engagement from the Anganwadi women. Apart from savings schemes, these women were also made aware about the importance of mobile banking and an opportunity to work as an Advisor with Adarsh Credit Co-operative Society Ltd.
We, at Adarsh Credit understand the significance of this initiative in the lives of women. Our country being at a developing stage requires such initiatives for better lives of women in the rural areas.Thus, the meeting is held every month in presence of all the Central Gujarat Anganwadi workers. In certain meetings held, members of Sakhi Mandal Group and Asha Workers also join to understand the importance of managing finances better.
We are glad that Adarsh Credit Co-operative Society Ltd.could contribute their bit by teaching the women today, to have a financially secure tomorrow. We look forward to take up more such initiatives that will not only enhance the lives of women, but also their families.
