    • Replication
      • Two forms of replication
      • Extension of existing organization
      • Setting up new organization
      • Primary requirements of replication and scaling up:
      • 1. Requirement of the service provided by the bank
      • 2. Availability of required financial and governmental backing
      • 3. Sustainability of the model
      • Advantages of scaling up of the same organization
      • 1. With the growth of the organization its capacity to give loans of higher amount increases
      • 2. The bank can employ better fund management techniques
      • 3. The bank can employ the use of technology in its operations
      • 4. The bank can diversify its operations into other areas that are of social importance (eg. The gramin family of organizations)‏
      • 5. The bank can utilise the government policies in a more effective way  
      • Requirement of setting up new organizations
      • 1. Faster replication
      • 2. world reach
      • 3. Customization of policies according to the specific needs of the people of the country
      • 4. More flexibility than one single organization
      • 5. As the main aim is social welfare, too much power in the hands of a single organization is dangerous
      • Specific requirements for scaling up through setting up new organizations
      • 1. Sufficient space of operations
      • 2. Trust in the model
      • 3. Availability if entrepreneurs to take the cause further
      • 4. Is the model sustainable for organizations having smaller operation
