Coimbatore offers opportunities for women and youth to get employment and also to have new start-ups of their own. This paper assesses the engagement of women in self-help groups (SHG) of Coimbatore which leads to the domestic and financial growth of the city. The raw data is collected using snowball sampling and further narrowed down the sampling size using a simple random sampling technique. The final sample size includes 566 women respondents. The results of the correlation matrix show the existence of relationships between the influencing factors namely, Family support, Socio-cultural, Low level of education, Gender inequality, Lack of interest by women, Availability of time, Attending SHG meetings, and Financial instability with the dependent variable Engagement of women in SHG. Multiple regression analysis shows that there is a numerical relationship of the independent variables with the dependent variable with a good model fit. From this research, the influencing factors on the dependent variable will contribute value to the literature as it explains the contribution of the influencing variables on the engagement of women in SHG of Coimbatore of India.
