Our Success Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

100+ MFIs impacting livelihoods of rural farmers through Magnus model and strategy!

Spread across 30 districts we have successfully integrated Phase I strategies in 103 Small Farmers Cooperatives. Phase II is being integrated now  in 25 of these rural coops. In addition to these particular cooperatives, 2 Grameen model MFIs, 3 SACCOs and 3 WoDev Coops have successfully completed pilot of Phase I. Now in 2011, in addition to reaching 150 mark for Small Famers Cooperatives, we will scale up to 100 more non Small Farmers MFIs. By the end of 2011, we will have 250 MFIs that would have completely integrated Phase I while majority would have integrated Phase II as well.
