GRAMEEN KOOTA (EXITED)

By providing small loans to women through a joint liability group platform, Grameen has impacted income generating activities in addition to offering on-loan products that range from household toilets to cook stoves. The company has 392,000 active clients and total assets of USD$81 million as of March 2014.

Grameen supports social initiatives like education, healthcare, clean energy as well as water and sanitation programs for its clients. With partner Navya Disha, Grameen Koota has supported 109,027 households with sanitation facilities, trained over 350 masons and has provided 56,251 households with access to clean drinking water. By 2020 the company aims to equip two million poor and low income households with the ability to create economic and social change.

Goodwell’s investment team helped Grameen Koota during its transformation into a for-profit MFI while simultaneously facilitating growth and streamlining operations within the company. Goodwell exited the company in 2014.
