  • The agenda for the presentation:First, we will define financial inclusion, its benefits and have a look at financial inclusion as a business opportunityThen we will have a look at the existing rural and priority sector business set up of Bank of Maharashtra and how it is positioned to take a benefit of the sameThird, we will move on to the telecom based banking model that we proposeAt the end we will have a look at some numbers to assess the viability of the business model which will be followed by a Q&A session
  • Financial Inclusion is the delivery of banking services at affordable costs to vast sections of disadvantaged and low income groups.
  • Focus on Income GenerationFor example, a woman may borrow Rs. 2500 to buy chickens so she can sell eggs. As the chickens multiply, she will have more eggs to sell. Soon she can sell the chicks. Each expansion pulls her further from the devastation of poverty.
  • Look at Financial Inclusion as a business opportunity than as a social obligationSwadharFinAccess has set up small kiosks through a BC agreement with ICICI Bank in the urban slums at various places such as Kurla, Malad and Dharavi. They undertake banking operations such as account opening, deposit, withdrawal and credit cards, etc at the kiosks and provide smart cards to new account holders. The smart card, complete with their name, thumbprint, and photo, acted as a identify card, and when combined with the adored ICICI logo, one that commanded respect. India does not have a national ID card. The smart card, in effect, provided them with an identity. Some of the users said that If you are going at night and you clash the police then you can show them this card and they wont trouble you. These comments reveal that a sense of dignity and self-respect were the unintended benefit of the bank cards, and therefore, well worth the 200 rupees for many clients.
  • The Bank has established a trust in the name of Maharashtra Agricultureal and Rural Development Foundation (MARDEF) to undertake various projects and rural development programmes. MARDEF is imparting training to farmers  on various subjects in agriculture viz., Dairy, Emu farming,Goat rearing, cultivation practices in grape farming, application of fertilizers, agriculture credit schemes etc.  Two Rural Development Centres are established by the Foundation. Maharashtra Self Employment Training Institute (M-SETI) is an innovative step taken by the Bank in co-ordination with the Government of Maharashtra for imparting training and providing self employment opportunities to the youth. The Bank has set up 5 such Institutes at Pune, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Nashik and Amaravati. The last one was set up in May 2009. The programmes are very successful in capacity building.  So far 4605 youths are trained. Training programmes on computer hardware & networking, photography, audiography & videography, beauty parlour and fashion designing are very popular. Over 72 per cent of the youths trained are settled in gainful occupations in and around their villages. This is enabling them to find avenues by remaining in their own villages. This is helping to increase job opportunities in rural areas and mofussil towns thereby to entail the inflow of  rural youth to urban areas for employment.The Bank has established GraminMahilaBaBalakVikasMandal,  with UNICEF Assisted Action Research Project for development of Women and Children in rural areas.  This Mandal is considered as a mother NGO since 2003. It has established two shops for strengthening marketing support to its self help groups. This NGO has so far facilitated 19,994 SHGs of which 17,919  SHGs are credit linked with outstanding advance of  Rs. 30.86 crore
  • Beyond LendingMicrofinance institutions offer business advice and counselling, while clients provide peer support for each other through solidarity circles. For example, if a client falls ill, her circle helps with her business until she is well. If a client gets discouraged, the support group pulls her through. This contributes substantially to the extremely high repayment rate of loans made to microfinance entrepreneurs.
