Microcredit is flourishing in India reaching 8m-10m households mainly
through “Self Help Groups”(SHGs) according to Sa-Dhan, an
association of Indian microcredit lenders. These groups are rapidly
expanding and typically bring together about 15 women who pool savings
for a few months, allocate them to members who need small amounts temporarily,
and are then eligible for a bank loan. The Indian government is also
introducing measures to further stimulate and promote microfinance institutions
to help them act as better intermediaries between banks and borrowers.
