Each year, the Campaign makes a concerted effort to include institutions that have previously not submitted Institutional Action Plans. In 2001, 57.8% of the growth in poorest clients reached came from institutions reporting for the first time covering data from December 31, 2000. A significant portion of the growth that year came from India’s National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), which had expanded dramatically over the previous four years. NABARD is the apex development bank in India developing self-help groups (SHGs), many of which are linked to formal banking institutions.
Ten institutions reporting to the Campaign for the first time in 2014 accounted for 13,275 borrowers living in extreme poverty. The data we pulled from the MIX database for 121 MFIs from India, Bangladesh, and the Philippines account for 4,560,345 poorest borrowers. Despite this expansion of our database, growth in poorest borrowers was negative for the third year in a row (Table 3).
