More than subsidies poor need access to credit. Absence of formalemployment take them non bankable. This forces them to borrow from local
moneylenders at exorbitant interest rates. Many innovative institutional mechanismshave been developed across the world to enhance credit to poor even in theabsence of formal mortgage. The present project discuss conceptual framework of microfinance in India. The successes and failures of various micro financeinstitutions around the world have been evaluated and lessons learnt have beenincorporated in a model microfinance institutional mechanism in India.Microfinance is gathering momentum to become a major force in India. Theself-help group (SHG) model with bank lending to groups of (often) poor womenwithout collateral has become an accepted part of rural finance. The projectdiscusses the state of SHG-based microfinance in India. With traditionally loss-making rural banks shifting their portfolio away from the rural poor in the post-reformperiod, SHG-based microfinance, nurtured and aided by NGOs, have become animportant alternative to traditional lending in terms of reaching the poor withoutincurring a fortune in operating and monitoring costs. The government and NABARDhave recognized this and have emphasized the SHG approach and working alongwith NGOs in its initiatives. Over half a million SHGs have been linked to banks over the years but a handful of states, mostly in South India, account for over three-fourthof this figure with Andhra Pradesh being an undisputed leader. In spite of theimpressive figures, microfinance in India is still presently too small to create amassive impact in poverty alleviation, but if pursued with skill and opportunitydevelopment of the poor, it holds the promise to alter the socioeconomic face of theIndia’s poor.
