Access to Finance and Human Rights

Abstract

This study has found that the problem of financial exclusion is rampant among the scheduled tribe communities in Kerala. The problem is more acute among the backward communities like the Paniya and Adiya. The solution to this problem lies in making the formal financial institutions more accessible to the tribe population. This can be done more effective by making access to finance or credit a human right.
