Our asset-side product suite underscores the Bank’s commitment to partnering inclusive growth. These offerings leverage advanced technologies; and seek to address the financial requirements of customers across the social pyramid by building relationships of trust.

We have demonstrated this across multiple segments:


EEG was formed in 2014 to cater to the business needs (both working capital and term loan requirement) of micro and small businesses with turnover of up to `10 crores and support them to grow to the next level.

EEG has adopted a very simplified approach to lending, driven by uniform products, credit scores and standardised processes. We have initiated many tie-ups with various corporates in the space of seller financing, franchise funding and invoice discounting.

EEG has also played a critical role in the implementation of various government schemes, targeted at micro and small business borrowers, such as CGTMSE, PMMY, among others.


At Axis Bank we see the microfinance business as an opportunity to bring in the un-organised sector in the banking fold. It is an effective tool to bring financial empowerment for the un-banked population. The Bank is in the retail microfinance initiative since June 2012. Apart from this, we are also running a Self Help Group lending programme, urban microfinance and business correspondence tie-ups. Through these initiatives, the Bank has reached out to 7 lakh families in rural and urban locations across the country and disbursed ~`1,500 crores.

We follow a holistic approach towards financial empowerment of customers. It includes providing financial literacy, credit counselling, micro credit and micro insurance. To take microfinance offerings to the next level, we have introduced tab-based banking, which has automated the entire end-to-end process. The result is low TAT and improved customer experience.

Creating pathways of progress

Savita and Ramlal, fought hard against poverty, but never abandoned their dream of a better life; Axis Bank is proud to partner their journey from financial distress to a life of dignity

When Savita and her husband Ramlal came to Najarpur, Ghatiya, Ujjain, the family did not have a regular source of income. Ramlal was doing odd jobs for survival and Savita worked as a daily wage labourer in construction projects, around her village.

With nobody else to lend a helping hand, Savita approached the local Axis Bank branch for a loan of `18,000 under the Axis Sahyog programme. She invested the money to start a small business of readymade garments. Her husband also supported her

After a prolonged struggle, today, with a monthly income of around `8,000 per month, Savita and Ramlal finally have a reason to smile. An inspiration to many women like her, Savita now motivates others in the village to become self-employed.

Thanks to the support of Axis Bank, I am now confident to provide good education to my children and secure their future. Today, people respect our family and I am grateful,” she says.
