What does Jana Small Finance Bank do?

Established in July 2006 as ‘Janalakshmi Financial Services Private Limited,’ Jana Small Finance Bank Limited has undergone many transformations. It began as a non-banking financial institution and later turned into a scheduled commercial bank, beginning operations as a Small Finance Bank on March 28, 2018.

Jana SFB’s core focus lies in providing a range of financial solutions, including secured products like MSME loans, affordable housing loans, and unsecured offerings like individual and micro business loans.

Since its inception in 2008, the bank has served nearly 1.2 crore customers, with 48.7 lakh active customers as of September 30, 2023. According to Fitch, it is currently the fourth-largest Small Finance Bank in terms of AUM and deposit size.

It also has a digital presence, providing mobile and internet banking services to both retail and corporate customers. Between March 31, 2021, and March 31, 2023, the bank’s gross secured advances increased from ₹50,760.00 million to ₹99,047.54 million, resulting in a CAGR of 39.69%.
