Microfinance in India: A State of the Sector Report, 2007 is one in a series of annual reports on the microfinance sector in India. It is a comprehensive one-stop document that provides a holistic view of the sector, providing a detailed analysis of its status and future. It highlights recent developments under each of the two main models of microfinance in India -the SHG and MFI models. Most significantly, it engages with issues of topical interest such as the microfinance bill pending in parliament in a balanced and objective manner, and focuses on policy issues that need the attention of decision makers. The book carries a statistical appendix which provides essential data on the sector, and strengthens its utility as a reference document. It will be of interest to various players in the sector including practitioners, bankers, insurance companies, venture capitalists, regulators, donors and academics.
