While the Bank was initially conceived of as a safe space for rural women to save their money, we have grown and evolved over time. Our focus has remained on supporting women to control their finances and grow their incomes. We were one of the first banks that provided doorstep banking services, electronic passbooks, micro-enterprise loans and insurance schemes. We regularly develop and pioneer affordable loan products for women. We also work closely with the Mann Deshi Foundation to support women’s businesses grow and flourish. Entrepreneurs who come to the Bank for working capital loans are referred to the Business Schools run by the Foundation for additional business support and training. Likewise, graduates from the Business schools are provided loans by the Bank to set up and expand their enterprises.
At present we are dedicated to empowering women to understand, access and become comfortable with cashless banking. We are gearing up to provide agent-based real-time digital banking services at convenient locations that will ensure that women entrepreneurs benefit from the latest technology.
