In this section, you will find details on research projects undertaken by Swadhaar, either independently or in conjunction with other partners. The relevant project reports have been made available in hope that the findings will benefit individuals and organisations in the microfinance sector at large.
In February 2011, based on evaluations of proposals from several partners across India, the Unitus Microfinance Innovations Grant Fund awarded Swadhaar a grant of $50,000 for Swadhaar’s proposal on ‘Streamlining Individual Lending Evaluations’. The entries were assessed based on innovation, impact, ability to successfully implement the proposal and influence of the proposed innovation or study on the organisation's and microfinance industry's strategic direction. The grant was an excellent opportunity for Swadhaar to dedicate high quality resources towards a detailed analysis of our Individual Loan portfolio and also to build a complete database of client information for future analysis.
