Our product offering under the “SARAL” category is extremely simple considering the challenges of evaluating the income generation opportunity of our borrowers. After detailed analysis, we decided to offer vanilla microfinance products for women entrepreneurs within the JLG (Joint Liability Group) model. Apart from loans for income generation, JAGARAN also provides small loans for the education of the children of the borrowers’ families under the SHIKSHA (INR 5000 & 10000) Loan category. These loans are provided to fulfil school fees, purchase books and stationery for the wards.Jagaran started Solar Energy Funding (solar energy run lamps) for our poor women clients living in rural and semi urban areas of Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha& West Bengal. In case of an emergency, Jagaran also offers EMERGENCY (INR 6000,12000& 16000) loan product to its borrowers. Typically, the maximum product tenure is 52 weeks. Disbursement is carried out at branches while collection happens at the centres. We offer support for a range of livelihoods but our focus is mostly on agriculture and allied activities. The rate of interest is in line with the guidelines issued by the Reserve Bank of India from time to time and on a reducing balance basis. The borrowers have the choice to repay the loans on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly rests. Charges are as defined by the Reserve Bank of India and consist only of Processing Fees of 1%. There are no hidden charges. Complete transparency is maintained with the borrowers. We also provide pass books free of cost.
