The primary responsibilities for collection of instalments rest with the Relationship Officer and the Branch Manager. The place of collection is the venue of Center Meetings at each village on the designated days. All collections are completed during daytime and the Relationship Officer returns to the Branch with the collection amount. The fact that our collection process is well accepted reflects in the repayment rate of 98.46%. As a policy, no coercive action is to be resorted to and untimely visits to individual members’ homes are completely discouraged. The joint liability group model is strictly followed to protect its sanctity and ensure that the group discipline is never compromised.
During Center Meetings, apart from the routine exercise of collecting instalments, the Relationship Officers try and address and advise members on relevant social issues and practices. This in turn helps the Center Meetings become more lively and participative. Often, experience sharing and skill enhancement opportunities are deliberated.
