Hi Palak,

Self Help Group (SHG)  is a group of about 15-20 members who pool their savings together. Members can take loans from the group’s savings themselves on a decided rate of interest. The rate of interest is much lower than the interest that is charged by the informal sources.

Cooperative societies are a formal source of credit. The rate of interest charged by the cooperative societies is much lower than charged by moneylenders.
