How credit co-operatives fail to reach the rural poor



How credit co-operatives fail to reach the rural poor



Kurukshetra 28(18): 4-7, 14



The paper discusses the changes in co-operative policy in relation to provision of credit to farmers in India since 1956, examines the reasons for the failure of the co-operative credit structure to meet the needs of the small farmers, and stresses the need for streamlining the credit co-operatives to cater to the needs of the rural poor.
