Sarthak Microfinance’ is a brand name under which the NGO Balajee Sewa Sansthan (Registered under Society Registration act.) has started microfinance operation in Uttarakhand & other parts of north India. The organization is having corporate office at Dehradun and expanding in four states of North India (Bihar, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh) in rural & semi-urban areas.
‘Sarthak Microfinance’ is among the few microfinance institution which wants to start the operation in rural & semi-urban areas of Uttarakhand which are normally deprived of regular financial institutions. Due to extensive geographical challenges & scattered population these areas are not even touched by micro finance institutions. This gives no choice to a large chunk of population than to depend on the exploitive conditions of moneylenders.
Identifying this opportunity Sarthak has started operation in three districts of Uttarakhand in Garhwal region naming Tehri Garhwal, Uttarkashi & Dehradun. After completing the six months of operation we will enter to other districts of Garhwal & Kumauon.
Sarthak microfinance aims of bringing financial & development services towards inclusive growth of society.
