The study specifically targeted rural SHGs. The mathematical sampling approach given by Miller and Brewer was used. The study used questionnaires, interviews and secondary data. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. The study established that the groups are in partnership with other groups/ organizations. The major partners are; government agencies, banks and MFIs. Groups have business collaborations with different partners; these service providers assist the members through raising awareness on business management. The partners also offer financial support and training progammes to the self-help groups. The members get new ideas by interacting with other groups, which assist in improving income which enable the members to repay the loans.  Correlation analysis indicated a significant positive relationship between partnership and SHGs performance.
