Thrissur, Kerala, India
ESAF Microfinance organized a panel discussion with some of the lead financial service providers in the state of Kerala to deliberate on the contribution of these FSPs towards financial Inclusion. The panel discussion posed the question “How Far Have we Reached? A Kerala Perspective” and brought together 150 participants from universities, banks, MFIs, and ESAF clients. ESAF client testimonials were also organized where the clients spoke about the changes they have undergone after the microfinance support through ESAF.
Additionally, ESAF organized a public function in Jharkhand which is one of the states with the greatest unbanked populations. Along with this public function, staff from different departments of the head office met with ESAF microfinance clients to better understand the needs and concerns of the clients.
