Chapter 1: Introduction
Microfinance is defined as any activity that includes the provision of financial services such ascredit, savings, and insurance to low income individuals which fall just above the nationallydefined poverty line, and poor individuals which fall below that poverty line, with the goal of creating social value. The creation of social value includes poverty alleviation and the broader impact of improving livelihood opportunities through the provision of capital for microenterprise, and insurance and savings for risk mitigation and consumption smoothing.
 
A largevariety of actors provide microfinance in India, using a range of microfinance delivery methods.Since the founding of the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, various actors have endeavored to provide access to financial services to the poor in creative ways. Governments have pilotednational programs, NGOs have undertaken the activity of raising donor funds for on-lending, andsome banks have partnered with public organizations or made small inroads themselves in providing such services. This has resulted in a rather broad definition of microfinance as anyactivity that targets poor and low-income individuals for the provision of financial services. Therange of activities undertaken in microfinance include group lending, individual lending, the provision of savings and insurance, capacity building, and agricultural business developmentservices. Whatever the form of activity however, the overarching goal that unifies all actors inthe provision of microfinance is the creation of social value.
