Alok Prasad

CEO of Microfinance Institutions Network (MFIN)

“We need constructive participation and collaboration,” said Alok Prasad, CEO of Microfinance Institutions Network (MFIN), aptly summing sum up the panel discussion on Microfinance and Empowerment: The Last Mile Challenges and Solutions at the conference on Bihar: Banking on Inclusion, organised by Governance Now, along with department of planning and development of government of Bihar and Asian Development Research Institute (ADRI).

Prasad was reflecting the concerns expressed by the panelists, which ranged from a crisis of funding and high cost of operation that plague microfinance institutions to the need for social strengthening, taking education and healthcare to the underprivileged sections of society for the idea of inclusive growth to be sustainable and meaningful. There was unanimity that a single intervention like microfinancing was not enough for inclusive growth.
