The Dilemma of ….. The Inverted Pyramid NABARD Banks Rural population Large Banking infrastructure, enhanced outreach in rural areas , 70 million small loans, pro-poor policies, subventions, programmes and intentions like directing credit to the rural areas, large resource base of banks, good manpower and sound control systems……. ….BUT …the Debt and investment surveys revealed skewness in credit flow, declining household debt from non- institutional agencies still formed a sizable measure. The search for reasons and the mismatches started….in the 1980s “WE MAKE BANKING POSSIBLE WITH THE LAST , THE LOST AND THE LEAST”
Findings from Research studies ….. NABARD …… in the 1980s Savings and credit products did not suit the needs of the poor Procedures were complicated and cumbersome High transaction costs for the poor and the delivery system System did not provide for anything to fall back on Even special poverty alleviation programmes did not recognise importance of savings Resources handled were often larger than the poor’s capacity to handle “Others” decided everything So we were looking for… the POOR just wanted…. Or just Sustainable approaches •Mechanism to keep their limited Hassle-free Products that match resources safely financial Needs & capacities • Credit to meet emergencies services Reduce trans costs • Credit for mEs “WE MAKE BANKING POSSIBLE WITH THE LAST , THE LOST AND THE LEAST”
NABARD The Self Help Group (SHG). . What is it ? A homogeneous group of about 15 to 20 Every member to save a small amount regularly. Pooled savings kept in a savings bank account in SHG’s name transaction costs of both the poor and bank reduced ! SHG to use pooled thrift to give interest bearing loans to members – decisions taken in group meetings Every member learns prioritisation and financial discipline. Their capacities to think and handle larger resources improves! Depending on the SHG’s maturity, bank gives loan to the SHG as a multiple of the pooled savings. Bank loan added to the SHG kitty.
