Biswa is one of India’s leading NGO’s that operate in the Self Help Groups Sector
Given below is their resource guide and reference manual which is distributed to all their employees. Having glanced through it briefly , I can say it is a very well structured and researched manual. The fact that BISWA won the 2009 NGO of Year award is proof of the quality of their work. NGO’s and Self Help Group Promoting Instituions should take a leaf out of their books.
Posting it here so that those working in the Microfinance/Self Help Group Sector in other parts of India might learn and benefit from the best practices of Biswa.
