Madura Micro finance was founded in 2006. The lending model has its origins at the former Bank of Madura where beginning in 1995, the late Dr. K.M. Thiagarajan, as Chairman and CEO, experimented with a new model of SHG training and lending as a means to create a sustainable profit based model of rural lending. The goal was to develop a system that could bring infusions of low-interest capital into rural areas on a scale that would be untenable for non-profit organizations. We carry forward these goals and legacy in our mission.
