Geographic Distribution of Microfinance Services in India, 2007

Doug Johnson


IFMR LEAD systematically collected district-wise data on number of active borrowers and loans outstanding for several of India’s largest MFIs over three years as part of its Map of Microfinance project sponsored by the Swiss Agency for Cooperation and Development. In this note, we analyze the data collected as a part of this exercise to paint a picture of the geographic distribution of microfinance services in India and to describe geographic trends in the growth of microfinance services across the country over the past year.
