ROLE: Producer, Camera Operator, Editor: Tanzania. Self Help Groups play a unique role in women's social and economic empowerment by contributing to increased resilience in the face of shocks like food insecurity or natural disasters. In addition to a general fund where business loans are given based on a interest rate set by the group, SHGs have a social fund where loans are given interest-free for household and unexpected expenses. The social fund of SHGs have been used to pay for emergency health care, household food supplies during drought and other expenses that support the families of SHG members. Here, women in Self Help Groups in Kongwa District, Tanzania discuss the SHG's impact on their lives
