he Centre for Rural Education and Development (CRED) is a woman headed non-governmental organization working since 1987 in the district of Madurai. Pioneer in the introduction of micro-credit strategy in the project area, CRED has always focused its activities mainly on women empowerment and has, by far, organized 650 Self Help Groups.
The creation of economic sustainable micro-enterprises is, however, only the starting point! Selected SHGs women are further involved in multi sector activities and elected as privileged promoters of development all around the target area.
