Small entrepreneurs have formed their co-operative society on 24-11-1994 named "SWAYAMPRERIKA MAHILA SAHKARI AUDYOGIK SANSTHA" which has been profit oriented since the very beginning. Minimum supervision and Maximum Profit through collective efforts is the strategy adopted by the society. The institute has kept itself totally away from all agitational approaches and political influences and restricted itself to various development activities through informal education, constructive guidance and has been giving stress on self dependence in each and every field of activity.

A woman after fulfilling the responsibilities of her family, should think of herself, come out of the four walls, and educate herself for keeping the family intact in shaping the generation.
