India has a large population with little or no access to organized credit, especially in the rural areas. Satin, through its network of about 800+ branches provides financial services, primarily to women in these areas. In the next phase of growth, a strong capital position and technological innovation will enable the company to gain more scale and efficiently extend financial inclusion across the country, SCNL said in a statement.
On a consolidated basis, Satin Creditcare Network's net profit fell 57.3% to Rs 11.27 crore on 19.3% growth in total income to Rs 253.73 crore in Q2 September 2017 over Q2 September 2016.
Satin Creditcare Network (SCNL) is one of the largest microfinance institutions (MFIs) in the country.
