Commenting on the performance, Mr. Udaya Kumar Hebbar, MD and CEO of CreditAccess Grameen, said, “The signs of significant rebound in the rural economy during Q2 FY22 augurs well for our company as we were able to disburse INR 3,890 crore and contribute to the rural capital creation story across the country. Our consolidated portfolio grew by 19.2% YoY to INR 13,333 crore in Q2 FY22. Our collection efficiency consistently improved to 93.3% at CA Grameen and 87% at MMFL in Sep-21. We opened 121 branches in Q2 FY22, primarily in the newer markets like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Jharkhand and Rajasthan. As a part of completion of the process integration with MMFL, we have aligned MMFL’s provisioning policy with CA Grameen, recognising GNPA at 60+ dpd compared to 90+ dpd. While this led to higher provisioning during the second quarter, we considered this at an appropriate time given that all the process, policies and operating model have been integrated under one umbrella.

We maintained strong business momentum in Oct-21, disbursing INR 1,372 crore resulting in consolidated portfolio growth of 20.2% YoY to INR 13,647 crore. Collection efficiency further improved in Oct-21 to 94.3% for CA Grameen and 87% for MMFL. We opened another 21 branches in Oct-21, taking the total branch network to 1,566. Overall, we added near 2 lakh new borrowers during Jul-21 to Oct-21.

With the reduced severity of the pandemic situation and with increasing vaccination throughout the country, thanks to the huge efforts from Govt. of India, we are confident of delivering strong business growth in the second half of the FY22 as well as coming years. Assuming that there are no further severe business disruptions on account of Covid, we look forward to achieving loan portfolio growth of 17%-19% with a credit cost of 4.7%-4.9% resulting in an ROA of 1.8%-2.0% for the FY22. Our integrated platform along with MMFL, underpinned by our rural focus, customer centric approach, strong liquidity, capital adequacy, highly experienced management and strong balance sheet places us in the forefront to drive growth in the microfinance industry.”
