IN order to build some brand equity by doing social service, ICICI Bank has decided to undertake a MISSION for reducing low birth weight incidence at the village level. Undertaken by ICICI Bank's Social Initiatives Group, the bank has decided to identify effective and scalable strategies for delivering the services required to impact female nutritional status to tackle the incidence of low birth babies. Appointing several partners to work on this project an ICICI Bank official says, ``This is going to be a significant MISSION supported by the bank and the aim to understand whether a suitably trained health worker working with the public health system and the integrated child development scheme can provide quality services to impact low birth incidence at the village level.'' The MISSION is based in Ranchi district in Jharkhand and is being implemented through a partnership between the Department of Health, Government of Jharkhand, Krishi Gram Vokas Kendra(KGVK) and Care, both of whom are NGOs based in Jharkhand and the Child in Need Institute (CINI), an NGO based in West Bengal. Adds the ICICI Bank official, ``ICICI Bank needs to participate in the all round development of the country by focusing on some of its fundamental problems. It seeks to perform this role primarily as a funding agency, through its Social Initiatives Group.'' ICICI Bank's Social Initiative Group's (SIG) mission is ``to identify and support initiatives designed to improve the capacities of the poorest of the poor to participate in the larger economy.'' The group seeks to achieve its mission by supporting initiatives that are costeffective, capable of large-scale replication and have the potential for near and longterm impact. ``ICICI Bank believes in strengthening or supplementing existing systems rather than investing in parallel structures.

There is an increasing shift in the microfinance sector from grant-giving to investment in the form of debt or equity. the CEO of one of ICICI Bank's major MFI partners. Executive Director of ICICI Bank.

Partnership Models
But how has ICICI Bank been able to achieve such rapid growth in such a short time? This success is due to a series of innovative models and initiatives. While a model of microfinance has emerged in recent years in which a microfinance institution (MFI) borrows from banks and on-lends to clients, few MFIs have been able to grow beyond a certain point. Under this model, MFIs are unable to provide risk capital in large quantities, which limits the advances from banks. In addition, the risk is being entirely borne by the MFI, which limits its risk-taking.

The MFI as Collection Agent
To address these constraints, ICICI Bank initiated a partnership model in 2002 in which the MFI acts as a collection agent instead of a financial intermediary. This model is unique in that it combines debt as mezzanine finance to the MFI.[1] The loans are contracted directly between the bank and the borrower, so that the risk for the MFI is separated from the risk inherent in the portfolio. This model is therefore likely to have very high leveraging capacity, as the MFI has an assured source of funds for expanding and deepening credit. ICICI chose this model because it expands the retail operations of the bank by leveraging comparative advantages of MFIs, while avoiding costs associated with entering the market directly.

Another way to enter into partnership with MFIs is to securitize microfinance portfolios. In 2004, the largest ever securitisation deal in microfinance was signed between ICICI Bank and SHARE Microfin Ltd, a large MFI operating in rural areas of the state of Andra Pradesh. Technical assistance and the collateral deposit of US$325,000 (93% of the guarantee required by ICICI) were supplied by Grameen Foundation USA. Under this agreement, ICICI purchased a part of SHARE's microfinance portfolio against a consideration calculated by computing the Net Present Value of receivables amounting to Rs. 215 million (US$4.9 million) at an agreed discount rate. The interest paid by SHARE is almost 4% less than the rate paid in commercial loans. Partial credit provision was provided by SHARE in the form of a guarantee amounting to 8% of the
- 85 -

receivables under the portfolio, by way of a lien on fixed deposit. This deal frees up equity capital, allowing SHARE to scale up its lending. On the other hand, it allows ICICI Bank to reach new markets. And by trading this high quality asset in capital markets, the bank can hedge its own risks. Janet MacKinley, chairman of the Income Fund of America and Vice Chair of Grameen Foundation USA's Program Committee welcomes this deal; she says: "I believe it will encourage more of these types of transactions that can play a strategic role in making microfinance more widely available to the world's poorest communities". Another securitisation deal was also signed with Bhartya Samruddhi Finance Limited (BSFL), in which ICICI Bank securitised the receivables of a selected portfolio of microfinance loans by BSFL amounting to Rs 42.1 million (US$ 957,000). Both under the partnership model and under the securitisation deal, the bank provides organizations with financial support at a mezzanine level which enables them to offer credit protection in the microfinance portfolios to a reasonable extent.

Training New Partners
Despite rapid growth, the lack of NGOs and MFIs operating in India remains a constraint. According to ICICI Bank, there is a need for approximately 200 MFIs to cover the country, however there are only 15 large players capable of scale. New players are therefore needed: ICICI believes that new NGOs, entrepreneurs, and corporations who conduct development activities in rural areas can and should become MFIs. ICICI Bank has put in place its Micro Finance Development Team with the objective of identifying and training new partners. The Social Initiative Group of ICICI Bank (SIG) aims to partner with organizations to identify and support entrepreneurs in microfinance.

Working with Venture Capitalists

- 86 -

Another challenge in scaling-up the microfinance sector is the lack of equity capital. In order to solve this shortage, ICICI Bank is encouraging venture capitalists to start entering the sector. Several venture capital funds in the country have the capability of identifying and mentoring entrepreneurs, including Lok Capital, Aavishkar and Bell Weather. Bell Weather has made three equity commitments for start up, and its committee has decided to increase the size of the fund from US$10 million, to US$25 million. Lok capital mobilizes and directs private capital to fund microfinance activities and to fund long term management and technical support for development of commercially sustainable MFIs. Aavishkar provides micro-equity funding (Rs. 10 lacs to Rs. 50 lacs, approximately US$20,000 to US$100,000) and operational and strategic support to commercially viable companies increasing income in or providing goods and services to rural or semi-urban India. ICICI Bank has come to an agreement with these three venture capitalists under which it will provide take-out financing to the MFI to buy out the venture after a period of three to five years, provided the MFI attains an operational sustainability rating from Micro-Credit Ratings International Ltd (M-CRIL) and Credit Rating Information Services of India Limited (CRISIL).

Beyond Microcredit
Microfinance does not only mean microcredit, and ICICI does not limit itself to lending. ICICI's Social Initiative Group, along with the World Bank and ICICI Lombard, the insurance company set up by ICICI and Canada Lombard, have developed India's first index-based insurance product. This insurance policy compensates the insured against the likelihood of diminished agricultural output/yield resulting from a shortfall in the anticipated normal rainfall within the district, subject to a maximum of the sum insured.

One of the main challenges to the growth of the microfinance sector is accessibility. The Indian context, in which 70% of the population lives in rural areas, requires new, inventive channels of delivery. The use of technologies such as kiosks and smart cards will considerably reduce transaction costs while improving access. The ICICI Bank technology team is developing a series of innovative products that can help reduce transaction costs considerably. For example, it is piloting the usage of smart cards with Sewa Bank in Ahmedabad. To maximize the benefits of these innovations, the development of a high quality shared banking technology platform which can be used by MFIs as well as by cooperatives banks and regional rural banks is needed. ICICI is strongly encouraging such an effort to take place. Wipro and Infosys, I-Flex, 3iInfotech, some of the best Indian information technology companies specialized in financial services, and others, are in the process of developing exactly such a platform. At a recent technology workshop at the Institute for Financial Management Research in Chennai, the ICICI Bank Alternate Channels Team presented the benefits of investing in a common technology platform similar to those used in mainstream banking to some of the most promising MFIs. It is hoped that this workshop will unite five to ten MFIs in creating an independent association that will lead these efforts.

The Centre for Microfinance Research
While the sector has been growing rapidly, and while the focus has been largely on growing outreach, there is an urgent need to fill gaps both in practice and understanding in order to maximize the impact of this growth. To fill these gaps, ICICI bank has created the Centre for Microfinance Research (CMFR) at the Institute for Financial Management Research (IFMR) in Chennai. Through research, research-based advocacy, high level training and strategy building, it aims to systematically establish the links between increased access to financial services and the participation of poor people in the larger economy. The CMFR Research Unit supports initiatives aimed at understanding and analyzing the following issues: impact of access to financial services; contract and product designs; constraints to household productivity; combination of microfinance and other
