MICRO FINANCE - ROLE OF LAMPS IN THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF TRIBALS “(STUDY OF SAHIBGANJ DISTRICT
At the outset of this Research, Researchers task is to spread awareness about the LAMPS and make sure that this research is not the usual academic research but a deep insight into the lives of poor and into understanding those dimension which are so crucial but yet forgotten or till date unseen. We have dedicated this research to India, Jharkhand & to the Poor. In the study area, as in the country itself, there appears no immediate alternative to the Co-operatives. In a situation when the attention – both of the government and the people - is pinned on the bigger enterprises and the corporates, the weaker Section of the society has nobody to take care of except the Co-Operatives which exist to serve and protect the interests of those who are prone to exploitation in the existing economy. The farmers, workers, artisans, weaker Sections especially those living below the poverty line can be saved only by the Co-Operatives. Consequently, they hold a very important position, very much relevant, at least, to the study area. There is no limit to the working of the Co-Operatives. They can work for marketing of agricultural produce, creation of marketing infrastructure, establishment of agro-processing units, irrigation, water management, plantation and forestry, dairy, food processing etc. Here horizon is the limit.
