Transforming the Self Help Groups in to Self Help Cooperatives after the emergence of Orissa Self Help Cooperative Act in 2001 – a dream project of “Adhikar” as we find in it the true scope to ensure these rural women take up the challenges and organize their strengths and manage all the affairs, independently, to fulfill their own dreams. This owes its origin to the SHG linked financing started by Adhikar in the starting years before switching over to Self Help co-op. This transformation process was started in 2003 after the Gadget Notification of the Orissa Self Help Co-operative Act in 2002. Adhikar has not confined with the promotion of the Primary Self Help Co-operatives also promoted its apex structure named as Madhyamika Mahila Samabaya Sangha (KMMSS) to safe guard & support the member primary co-operatives in its functioning.
