This initiative has provided a range of gainful employment opportunities to over 61,000 poor women so far, who have been supported with capacity building and financial assistance by way of loans and grants. To date, 20,100 ultra-poor women in the core catchments had access to sustainable sources of income through non-farm livelihood opportunities. In addition, the programme provided a source of livelihood to 325 women in Uttar Pradesh engaged in making agarbattis using pedal machines. This is a home based activity for most women, providing supplementary income to them.
