Youngsters have no jobs, and some of them may be falling prey to the designs of fundamentalist groups

Slide50 l.jpg

"I also come from a farmer's family and I have some idea of the suffering and difficulties of the farmers, but after what I have seen and heard here today, I have come to know the extent of the sufferings and losses of the farmers for the first time."

Prime Minister, India

Suffering for long l.jpg

Suffering for long…

Farmers have been taking their lives in Andhra Pradesh after failing to repay high-interest loans from private money lenders

Analysts say the spate of suicides points to the complete collapse of cheap and affordable government credit to farmers.

Possible soultions l.jpg

  • A thorough state-level research on ground water tables and ways of improving their levels

  • Complete all pending irrigation projects and plan new projects in drought hit areas of Telangana and Rayalaseema regions

Role of e banking l.jpg


Slide58 l.jpg

  • For poor, risk is familiar and high. Strategies for coping with risk are a part of everyday life

  • Borrowing helps households achieve economic stability – temporary solution

  • Poor require savings services to help them better manage their resources and enable them to plan and finance their investments

  • Most importantly, the poor need insurance to lessen the blow when, for instance, the crops fail

Slide59 l.jpg

The poor should not be shut out of the resources for the risk they bear; on the contrary, the poor need additional services to mitigate that risk

Importance of saving l.jpg

Importance of Saving

  • Saving builds assets for future planned activities like children’s education and marriage

  • Saving decreases the amount of credit a household has to seek at high cost from informal lenders and reduce the sale of assets at low cost during times of distress

Slide61 l.jpg

  • Poor can save in the form of human capital by improving their health, nutritional status and education

  • This form of saving can produce real future benefits by raising productivity and speeding development

Importance of insurance l.jpg

Importance of Insurance

  • The poor need insurance to protect themselves from uncertainty

  • However, insurance services is fraught with special difficulties

  • The existence of insurance may cause people to involve in riskier behavior which ultimately pose higher costs on insurer

Choosing the right programs l.jpg

Choosing the right programs

  • To increase the financial services to the poor, the programs must fit the specific context of a particular area and its population

  • Programs must be adopted based on local occupational patterns, household spending and saving behavior, culture, resources available, agro-ecological characteristics, division of labor by gender and historical experience

Checklist l.jpg


Slide65 l.jpg

  • What kinds of financial services do the poor value? What economic activities are the poor engaged in, and what implications does this have for the type of services to be provided? What are existing sources of financial services, and how do the poor use them?

Slide66 l.jpg

  • What combination of financial instruments—credit, savings, insurance—are best developed, given specific demand from different types of clients? Do delivery systems (credit union, village banking, group-based lending) take into account the prevailing socioeconomic environments or local organizational systems?

Slide67 l.jpg

  • What non-conventional methods do the poor use to secure loans? Can these

    collateral substitutes be used within a more formalized banking system?

Slide68 l.jpg

  • Are regulations in place that govern mutually supportive transactions between

    the clients (borrowers) and institutions (lenders), such as deposit insurance and contract enforcement?

Slide69 l.jpg

  • Would the introduction or expansion of these services in a region be one of the most socially cost-effective ways to alleviate poverty there, given the state of infrastructure and markets, the availability of services, and the existence of other antipoverty and development programs in the region?
