In recent years, primary agricultural credit societies
(PACS) have been subject to a massive recapitalization under the
Vaidyanathan Committee Task Force recommendations and the loan waiver
of 2008. As a result, they may end up playing a larger role in the
provision of financial services for the poor. Using survey data
collected in 2007 and 2009 from six districts in Andhra Pradesh and
Orissa, this paper assesses the performance of 140 primary
agricultural credit cooperatives on management practices, personnel,
client performance and growth.
