Inspired by the philosophy of Ashoka Foundation Mr. Amin led Adhikar to become the leading organization in Self Help Group (SHG) movement and pioneered the Cooperative banking model in Odisha. Adhikar adapted the model to directly implement its developments in federating the SHGs and connect them to the resources like finance, technology, information and market, so that ultimately the poor communities grow and ride with country’s economic growth. Adhikar also took a leading role in advocating for the cause and recognition of the SHGs. This culminated in formation of SHG Cooperative law in 2001 in Odisha.
