Founded by international development NGO GRET, Thitsar Ooyin which is governed by Myanmar law commenced its microfinance activities on 1st January 2018 as a social entreprise, it aims to provide loans to poor disadvantaged populations in rural areas in order to fund income-generating activities.
Thitsar Ooyin (which means Garden of Loyalty in Burmese) is a continuation of the microfinance activities that GRET has been implementing in Myanmar for more than twenty years now. The NGO created the first Myanmar microfinance institution in 1995 in Chin State, an isolated mountainous region in North-West Myanmar.
Following this initial success, GRET decided to expand its financial inclusion services by creating a second microfinance institution in the Dry Zone (Sagaing Division) in 2014. As of January 2018, thanks to its network of 9 branches in Chin State and Sagaing Region and his 100 Myanmar staff, Thitsar Ooyin delivers financial services to 20,000 active clients predominantly living in rural areas with a portfolio of MMK 4.6 billion and a growing and high quality loan portfolio.
Over the coming five years, the institution aims to expand its outreach to serveral underserved new townships in Sagaing Region and Chin State with a range of loan products adapted to the needs of our rural population (group loan, agriculture loan, livestock loan, micro-enterprise loan, investment loan).
Thitsar Ooyin has two Regional Offices located in Hakha, Chin State, and in Monywa, Sagaing Region, which are under the responsibility of their Regional General Manager.
