YES Microfinance India (YMI)
In 2007, YES Bank Limited in partnership with ACCION International committed to create equal financial opportunities and enable financial inclusion by providing easy access to fairly-priced, transparent, and suitable financial products and services coupled by adequate financial education to un-banked and under-banked, low-income communities across urban and rural India. Now renamed YES Sampann (YS), the program stands out for its focus on urban poverty using individual lending methodology in a market that has largely been about group lending to rural women. The primary focus of the program will be on economically active, self-employed residents of urban Mumbai and the surrounding semi-urban and rural areas of the state of Maharashtra.
