NGO Profile :
Access Development Services (ACCESS) was set up to help build the capacity of community based institutions that deliver relevant financial and livelihood development services to the poor and unreached households. ACCESS was registered in New Delhi in 2006.

Some of their programs are as follows:

  • Micro-Finance: ACCESS enables Micro-Finance Institutions (MFI) to upscale their operations, enhance their services and meet the growing demand for financial services from the poor. ACCESS helps MFIs in four aspects: a) Operational Organisation that includes legal issues, product development, organization structure, business plan development, monitoring, group management and leadership training; b) Portfolio Management that includes client profiling, Self Help Group (SHG) rating, training & delinquency management; c) Financial Management that includes credit systems & policies, loan appraisal process, financial systems, external linkages of funds and financial planning & projections; d) Field & Practices that includes training & exposure visits.
  • Livelihoods: ACCESS impacts the life of poor in three ways: a) Organising primary producers to negotiate with the markets, provide them with economies of scale and the ability to effectively access resources, capital, services and entitlements. b) Aggregation helps the poor to pool their small surpluses into marketable lots and generate market interest and presents possibilities for local processing. c) Integrating the poor into value chain is critical for long term sustainability. Increasing their knowledge of market dynamics, market trends; information on pricing, suppliers, distributors, competition; new production technologies, awareness of policies and the ability to negotiate with markets. ACCESS on-field livelihood projects are implemented under three broad activities – Sustainable Agricultural Development, Forest-based activities and Handicrafts.
  • Livelihoods Asia Summit 2015: Livelihoods Asia Summit 2014 was held in New Delhi between December 10 and 11, 2015. More than 400 stakeholders from about 10 Asian countries participated in this event. According to the NGO, the Summit was successful in exploring scalable solutions that involved inclusive business models, inclusive value chains, livelihood innovations, skill development, private sector partnerships and other approaches that offered a pathway out of poverty.
