Microfinance India Summit 2012
Microfinance India is a national level advocacy platform, initiated by ACCESS Development Services, spurned off to ACCESS-ASSIST, to engage various stakeholders and develop a comprehensive vision for the entire sector. Indian microfinance remains a diverse and complex arena with its array of products and methodologies. Microfinance India seeks to promote the distinct voices of those associated with the field – regulators, policy makers, government, banks, insurance companies, MFIs, donors, academicians, SHPIs etc. The sector has matured and expanded its ambit of stakeholders - attracting new entrants such as rating agencies and social equity investors. Cumulatively, these new players, their financial instruments, delivery models, and technology platforms - emphasize the need for an expanded understanding of the arena and all its associated contributors. Microfinance India Summit, starting under the aegis of CARE, ACCESS and now ACCESS – ASSIST has become the most significant platform for the future visioning of India’s microfinance sector.
