IFMR Rural Finance

High quality delivery of financial services requires delivering them in a convenient, flexible, reliable and continuous manner. IFMR Rural Finance therefore has been set up by IFMR Trust with a mandate to design a model that can withstand scrutiny on the aforementioned essesntial parameters and thus pave the way towards complete financial inclusion in rural remote India.

IFMR Rural Finance believes that, to provide a complete range of financial services in a high quality manner requires: (i) a localised institution focusing on a limited geography with (ii) village-based branches providing a complete range of financial services under (iii) an advise-based framework of wealth management that helps the clients make optimal financial decisions. To achieve this IFMR Rural Finance is building and supporting local, geographically focused community financial services institutions called Kshetriya Gramin Financial Services (KGFS).
