Grameen Foundation On The Savings Patterns of India's Poorest

We believe that economic and social development solutions will improve by understanding the practical realities of those at the bottom of the economic diamond, and by testing the outcomes of programs designed to assist them.  The Grameen Foundation has been at the forefront of the movement to promote savings and entrepreneurship through microfinance for many years.

This Grameen Foundation white paper, (also found in our countries section on India) Solutions for the Poorest: Insights on Savings Behaviors of Clients, explores the savings behavior of the ultra-poor in India. It is based on the results of the Livelihood Pathways for the Poorest project – a collaboration between the Grameen Foundation and the Livelihood School (part of the BASIX Group), with support from The Rockefeller Foundation.
