Mini Self Employment Scheme


1. Introduction

This scheme is true example of “less investment and more profit”. The sample test of MSES reveals that one can earn immediately Rs. 50 to Rs. 100 per day with very less investment ranging from Rs. 1000 to Rs. 5000/- only. While selecting PWDs Socio-Economic background, skill, experience, interest, family support etc. should be assessed. Extensive follow up strategies should be planned, interaction with police/ NAC personnel & business neighbours should be made. The NGOs should take lead role to promote & popularise MSES.

2. Objectives

1. To arrange livelihood for poor PWDs who are in need of money immediately & channelise them into self- employment esteem.

2. To involve community, philanthropists, NGOs service clubs in a befitting manner.

3. Justification

The existence and continuation of this scheme is fully justified as it channelises the poor, unemployed PWDs into gainful activities to fulfill their urgent financial need with less investment and makes them earning member of the society.

4. Financial Resources

Since the livelihood of PWDs has to be arranged urgently so self finance or donations in form of self- employment kits through service clubs, philanthropists, community, public sectors, funding agencies, NGOs etc. may be arranged. Donations in cash should be avoided.

5. Time schedule

With in a week.

6. Orientation/motivation

12-15 hours in 3-4 days.

7. Selection criteria

The PWDs should have :

1. Poor Socio -Economic background

2. Urgent need of earning livelihood and deepest sense of economic independence through small venture.

The Self Employment venture should be chosen according to interest, aptitude, ability, local need and socio-economic background of PWDs.

8. Follow up

Initially PWDs may face complex problems (police, NAC, surrounding bussiness friends). On the other hand the client may have personality problems such as lack of confidence, inferiority complex, hesitation etc. so it needs extensive follow-up initially (15 daily visits, 15 alternative day visits, few weekly and monthly visits).

9. Limitation

The few limitations of MSES are :Very limited coverage, basically urban based, time constraints for follow-up, unwillingness of PWDs.
