IncIusive Finance India is a national advocacy platform, initiated by ACCESS Development Services, to engage various stakeholders and develop a comprehensive vision for the entire sector. Indian microfinance remains a diverse and complex arena with its array of products and methodologies. Microfinance India seeks to promote the distinct voices of those associated with the field - policy makers, donors, academics, SHPI's, and on the ground practitioners. In the past five years, the sector has matured and expanded its ambit of stakeholders - attracting new entrants such as rating agencies and social equity investors. Cumulatively, these new players, their financial instruments, delivery models, and technology platforms - emphasise the need for an expanded understanding of the arena and all its associated contributors.

Having evolved first under the aegis of CARE, and now as ACCESS, Inclusive Finance India has become the most significant platform for the future visioning of India's microfinance sector.
