Every woman in the state should be economically empowered. Our aim is to encourage women from Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and vulnerable groups to participate in economic activity and growth.

Created employment opportunities for many

“When women start ventures, they not only become self-reliant, they also create employment opportunities for many.
