India is a huge market for microfinance – it has more than 400 million poor seeking an opportunity to reduce their vulnerabilities, create assets and ensure income security. India’s microfinance sector is lauded as a savior of the poor and a good bet for investors.
According to industry reports, microfinance institutions (MFIs) would grow at an annual pace of 30%-35% over the next three years on the back of improved fund availability. MFIs have committed to opening at least 30 million bank accounts within a year through tie-ups with banks as part of the government’s ambitious financial inclusion plan recently announced.
Satin’s presence in underpenetrated north and central India micro finance market provides ample opportunity for sustainable future growth.
Good asset quality.
Points covered as above.
Satin (And even big brother SKS) was not given small bank license by RBI. If given, it would have helped satin to bring down borrowing cost, reduce political uncertainty and more lending flexibility. Anyways it is backed by strong muscles that liquidity won’t be any problem for Satin. Borrowing in last few months shows credentials.

I am not aware about competitive advantage satin enjoys in North and Central India, but overall market is huge and many companies can coexist and grow.
