Over the years, government and development agencies have been promoting groups (either as Community-Based Organizations or Community Development Associations) in order to strengthen the collective self-help capacity of rural dwellers especially the vulnerable groups. These groups/associations have been accepted as a reliable vehicle for sustainable rural development. Hence group approach has been adopted in implementing grassroots programmes such as Fadama, CBARDP, CSDP and other projects adopting CDD approach for implementation. However, these groups/associations, if not well managed, can mar delivery of development services provided through the projects and financial institutions.
