Project

Since 1995, GRET has been active in Chin State (north-west Myanmar) to set up a microfinance institution. The mountains in this zone on the Indian border are difficult to access and the population density is low. Nevertheless, the experimentation made it possible to design a microcredit system adapted to these inauspicious conditions. Today, this MFI manages a portfolio of approximately 4,000 clients and outstanding lending of approximately 200,000 USD. It is financially independent and has not received financial support from donors since 2006. GRET provides it with ongoing technical support.
