The Karnataka government aims to add 30,000 micro-enterprises to the existing 50,000, CN State Minister Ashwath Narayan said on Wednesday.
“The government aims to create more than 30,000 micro-enterprises, run by women in the self-help group. There are now 50,000 micro-enterprises,” said Narayan, who holds the Higher Education, IT/BT, Skills Development, Entrepreneurship and Livelihoods portfolio.
He was speaking to reporters on “Sanjeevini Saras”, a national women’s SHG (self-help group) fair which is scheduled here from April 8-18.
A total of 310 booths, including 160 from different parts of the country, will be set up at the fair, he said.
He said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai would inaugurate the fair where SHGs would showcase women’s skills, potential and work. Participating women would also sell their products such as looms, handicrafts, artifacts, heritage products, clothing, decorative items, earthen utensils, paintings, organic food products, spices and processed foods, the minister said. The fair is organized annually by the National Rural Livelihood Mission (NLM) with support from the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development Authority (MoHUA).
