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).
