ASA International, Guwahati Walkin for various Posts
ASA (www.asa.org.bd), one of the leading Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) in the world, has been working relentlessly in Bangladesh to reduce poverty since 1978. The formal banking sector in developing countries does not typically provide financial services to the poor. The microfinance movement has shown that there is a thriving market among the poor when financial products cater to their specific needs. The poor are a quite active group in any economy. ASA has shown that their needs can be met while at the same time making the institution profitable. Up to May 2010 ASA’s cumulative loan disbursement has been US$ 5,500 million while loan outstanding is US$ 500 million serving 5.7 million members through 3222 branches.
ASA International (ASAI) has been established to replicate ASA’s model of microfinance operations in various countries around the world, namely India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Ghana and Cambodia. Each of these MFIs will follow the highly efficient ASA model, adjusted to their local circumstances. Up to June 2010 ASAI India’s cumulative loan disbursement has been US$ 65 million, while loan outstanding is US $ 32 million and serving 250,136 borrowers through 220 branches. ASA International India is currently looking for an experienced Senior Consultant for India operation.
