Mr Brij Mohan
Former Executive Director, SIDBI
"About half of the Indian population still doesn't have a savings bank account and they are deprived of all banking services," says Brij Mohan, former Executive Director of SIDBI and Founder of SIDBI Foundation.
"Even today, the largest lender of money to such people is the money lender. Although a direct casual impact of microfinance, in view of a multitude of factors which impact the lives of the poor, is difficult to prove empirically, the Indian microfinance sector is witnessing reasonable growth after coming out of the 2011 Andhra Pradesh crisis. Mohan, currently the Chairman of Access Development Services, has served a number of institutions in the microfinance and small enterprise development sectors in an advisory capacity. "The only ways remaining for large MFIs to improve their efficiency are by implementing longer loan terms and fewer repayment instalment options, and closing down branches," says Brij Mohan. "There was a 'big leap' forward in enforcing self-regulation in many areas, including elimination of multiple loans and introduction of more defined ground rules, says Brij Mohan.
