Bank that makes its services accessible to rural women
Chetna Sinha is the founder of the Mann Deshi Mahila Bank in Maharashtra which gives banking services to more than three lakh rural women.
The bank’s services are designed as per the needs and requirements of the rural women.
For example, a team of field agents visit the rural women to collect their daily wages and deposit the money in their accounts. This is to avoid the travelling cost and time of the rural women.
The bank provides daily micro loans, savings plans, pensions and insurance.
The idea is to empower women to save money and bring their families and communities out of poverty.
