Owing to their absence small and private money lenders continue to enjoy unabated domination in this part of the world. This fact, however, does not hold better future for this region. That’s because traditional money lenders and small micro finance institutions can never revolutionize financial services like reputed banks can. So hopefully this town will witness entry of few reputed banks in near future.
