Message from MD & CEO

Udaya Kumar – Managing Director & CEO

I am pleased to welcome you to the website of CreditAccess Grameen Limited (formerly known as Grameen Koota Financial Services Private Limited).  I am sure you will find this dynamic and interactive website easy to navigate with quick access to information and answers to your queries.

CreditAccess Grameen started as a Trust in a small village in Bengaluru and has grown into a valuable market brand over nearly two decades.  Vinatha Reddy (Founder) and Suresh Krishna (Co-founder) nurtured the institution as an NGO and transitioned it to an NBFC in 2007-08, attracting key investors and transforming the institution into a mainstream NBFC-MFI over a period of time.  With a strong management team, CreditAccess Grameen has adapted relevant technology, innovation and strategies to continue to increase its customer experience and market share. We have witnessed consistent growth and are now ranked the third largest Indian NBFC-MFI by Micrometer, a Microfinance Institutions Network (MFIN) publication.

CreditAccess Grameen has always adopted a customer-centric business model throughout its growth and expansion. Its mission continues to be guided by its philosophy of balancing economic growth with social responsibility to effect lasting and meaningful change in the lives of its customers from the weaker sections of society.

At CreditAccess Grameen, we believe in lean and efficient operations so that we can offer the most competitive prices for our products. This has helped us deliver the right business and financial results and strengthened our ability to deliver long-term benefits to our stakeholders. Looking ahead, we intend to continue to replicate our growth and build on the strength of our brand.  The management team believes that we can continuously invest in innovation, new technologies, new products and community development programs complemented by high-quality portfolio and financial deliveries.

On behalf of my team and our honorable Board Members, I thank all our stakeholders, especially our clients who inspire us every day to join hands with them to build stronger and more prosperous communities that can actively participate in India’s vibrant growth story.

I welcome you to explore our website. I hope it provides you the information you are looking for and is easy to navigate. I welcome any suggestions which can add more value to the website.
