SUCCESS STORIES: A Strong Foundation for Growth

SKS' microfinance program has made remarkable strides in 1999-2001. We exceeded each of our growth targets, a 2240% increase in membership, a 3420% increase in income-generating loans, and a 1630% increase in members' savings.

We attribute this success to the peer-lending model and to our well-trained and dedicated field staff, who exercise the right degree of compassion and control. SKS staff go beyond formulaic thinking to make sure that our members use SKS services in a way that enables them to earn profits, build assets, and lift themselves out of poverty.
