“The 3rd quarter results are indeed most heartening. What we are witnessing is the sustained revival of the Microfinance industry – which augurs well for the national financial inclusion agenda. Given the current trend lines, I am confident that the industry will grow by over 40 % in GLP terms, this fiscal. With PMJDY driving opening of basic bank accounts and NBFC – MFIs driving the growth in Micro-credit, poor households are finally being able to access financial services in a much more comprehensive way.” said Alok Prasad, Chief Executive Officer, MFIN.
