Suryoday Small Finance Bank – The beginning of a new era in ‘Inclusive Banking’

Suryoday - ‘Sunrise’ in Sanskrit, signifies a new dawn, a new beginning and this encompasses our strong commitment to financial inclusion. In the past, as Suryoday Micro Finance and now as Suryoday Small Finance Bank.

Our journey from Micro Finance to a Small Finance Bank took just eight years. Today over a million ‘smiling customers’ stand testimony to our belief that ‘no matter what, dreams, when enabled will transform mankind and create a whole new world around’.

We are among the 10 companies and the only one from Maharashtra to obtain a ’Small Finance Bank’ licence from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).

Suryoday Small Finance Bank Ltd. – A “small” step in banking but a “big” leap for social inclusiveness.

Suryoday Small Finance Bank is a new age bank that went live on January 23rd 2017. Our endeavour is to bring the best banking solutions to the ‘banked’, ‘under-banked’ and the ‘un-banked’ sections of the society. Our power packed solutions are designed to offer the choicest of benefits to suit different financial needs. As always, our focus will continue to be on ensuring the best in class ‘Customer Experience’.

As a bank, we will

  • Continue to offer our existing credit products suite of MFI loans, Vikas Loans, Shopkeeper Loans etc. to new and current customers.
  • Offer digital banking as the key account differentiator to customers using the extensive seeding of Aadhar biometric identification system, NPCI’s payment systems and mobile technologies whilst continuing to explore banking through traditional channels.
  • Focus on the unserved and the underserved through innovative banking practices and continue to expand reach in states where we currently don’t have a presence

Corporate Social Responsibility

In 2013, the government of India passed Section 135, mandating companies with a certain turnover to spend 2% of their average profit for the past three years on corporate social responsibility (CSR). Driving the passage of the law was the intent to have the country’s businesses actively participate in the social development of the country.

Seven years have passed since the law came into effect and CSR has emerged as an active participant in shaping India’s development history: while India surges forward economically on one hand, it also confronts developmental challenges that affect the length and breadth of the country. For a country of 1.3 billion, out of which approximately 22% live below the poverty line, urgency marks the need.

Suryoday Small Finance Bank has been at the helm of financial inclusion since 2008. As a microfinance institution in it’s earlier avatar, it was able to create an outreach of over 7 lakh micro borrowers. As a responsible lender, it has always deemed financial literacy important. The bank’s Corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives are focused on financial literacy initiatives. Over a period of time the programs have been strengthened to keep pace with central government initiatives such as Jan Dhan, Aadhaar and Mobile (JAM) framework and digital financial literacy drives.

Some of the areas which our Social Initiative Team is involved in include :
