About The Project

Urban Livelihood Project (DAY-NULM), MUDA: WWAGS started Urban Livelihood Project for the people in the Urban areas of Lilong Municipal Council in Imphal West District and Lilong Municipal Council in Thoubal District under the protection, backing and support of Manipur Urban Development Agency (MUDA) with effect from 31 st December 2016 as a continuation project. The project is sponsored by Deendayal Antodaya Yojana – National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM). Women having similar activities are organised to form SHGs and they are given training to generate income for credit linkage with banks so that they can get financial assistance from banks. 368 (three hundred sixty eight) SHGs are formed and out of these 368 SHGs, 48 SHGs have already got credit linkage with loans at the rate of Rs. 1,00,000/- in each SHG from Manipur Rural Banks and remaining SHGS are expected to get credit linkage as soon as possible. During the months of lockdown due to COVID – 19 pandemic these SHGs prepare and design face mask which are distributed to public to protect from COVID-19 pandemic and also donated to district administrators of Thoubal District, Imphal West District and Imphal East District. WWAGS also had registered 2 ALF (Areas Level Federation) in Lilong (Thoubal Municipal Council) under the Co-operative Society Act and the remaining are under process.
