PE FIRMS EYE DIVERSIFIED MICRO- FINANCE INSTITUTIONS

After a gap of two years, Private Equity (PE) investors are again stacking investments in the
micro finance sector. This time, it is the diversity of the portfolio that is attracting PE investors
rather than profits from the core business of lending. Drifting away from Micro finance Institutions
(MFIs) operating under the traditional group lending model, PE firms are now investing in MFIs with strong distribution networks to market a gamut of products and services - from insurance, pension plans, chit funds to smokeless cooking ovens and bicycles.
