In light of the recent achievements, Mr. Vivek Tiwari – MD & CEO, Satya MicroCapital Limited comments, “From reaching 1,000 entrepreneurs in our first 100 days, Satya has now successfully made a giant leap by offering loans to 2 lakh entrepreneurs. This was possible owing to Satya’s high touch, and advanced-technology-based model supported by a cashless and paperless approach. Having achieved this feat, we plan on keeping up the work of empowering more and more people at the lowest rung of social ladder, especially women who are looking to start or expand their businesses. By the year 2025, our goal is to give a socio-economic boost to 5 million households in both rural and urban markets. Our objective is to become the preferred choice for underserved people looking for funds to create their enterprise and boost their chances of earning a stable livelihood.”
Headquartered in Delhi, SATYA started its microfinance operations by adopting the “Joint Liability Group (JLG) Model” with adequate use of technology and new adaptations .The JLG lending operation mainly focuses on the less privileged entrepreneurs based in rural and semi-urban areas across India by offering collateral-free credit to micro enterprises on the basis of strong credit assessment and centralized approval. The focus of Satya MicroCapital is mainly on providing services to women who are looking to either start or expand their existing business. The group’s Joint Liability Group (JLG) model which facilitates credit for women, with their husbands acting as co-borrowers, is a critical step towards gender equity and uplifting women across the nation’s workforce.
