In this paper the relationship is assessed between participation in microfinance program under SGSY scheme through forming Self-Help Group and getting employment through Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Program (MGNREGP). Using Tobit Model with endogenous covariate method it is established that participation in microfinance program operating through joint liability credit contract help the rural households mainly the women to generate more social capital than the non-participant households which ultimately help them to get more information about different developmental program like MGNREGP initiated by the government. Hence, it came out from our investigation that microfinance participant member households get more number of man-days of employment through MGNREGP than the non-member households. It is also established from our investigation that households with higher average monthly income and less dependency ratio are less prone to demand job under MGNREGP.
