Janalakshmi was growing faster than the other MFIs and was one of the largest MFIs when high-value currency notes were discontinued. It has impacted the entire industry and as Janalakshmi was a large industry, it proportionally impacted the more MFIs more than others, said Ratna Vishwanathan, CEO of Microfinance Institutions Network (MFIN).

In April, JFS got the licence from RBI to operate as Small Financial Bank and plans to open up its own 300 branches in key locations in India.
