The Indian Microfinance fraternity is deliberating issues of breadth, depth and impact of services. Many stakeholders are making efforts to enhance quality of products and services being offered to clients. Due to a large population of people out-of-reach of the formal financial system, however, the supply side potential remains immense. This makes it tougher to catalyze a transition from supply driven to demand driven growth. There is a need to sensitize and capacitate microfinance practitioners towards understanding the market in greater detail and appreciating specific needs of customers. Market research, a widely accepted and employed science to collect and analyze relevant data about customers, competitors and markets, has found limited usage in Microfinance.
