Dear well-wishers, Friends, Patrons, we are back after a gap for some time. The pandemic has brought in a sea-change in our life-style and a new normal is more than a reality. But it has brought in more demand for inclusivity and Access to Finance as a craving need for a larger section of the population, especially the Lower and the middle tier. The pandemic effect is leaving a deep scar, from unprecedented body counts, devastation & destitution to millions of home and businesses, in almost every corner of the world, somewhere more, somewhere moderate. Since we live today in a world as a global village disruption and devastation affects us all in some degree or other

But out of the ravages comes the new lease of life, renewed lust for life and human civilisation takes another onward invigorating step coming around to survive with the anguish of the lost dear ones, of lost life & livelihood of the countless. But history of modern civilisation has taught us how to rebound after the fiercest of wars, or after the deadly Spanish Flu or the two world wars with two decades in the twentieth century. Human civilisation rebounded in a great way since 1945. Covid-19 Pandemic too is showing signs of abating with spurts of different variants in some country or the other. In most countries where vaccination drive has reached a critical mass life is slowly returning to normal. There is every chance of revival of some spike here and there, but people in general is learning to live with the Covid after effects.

What is usual after this kind unprecedented whole some disruption is the natural tendency to bounce back. In retrospect we find not everything is dead and the civilisation brought in behavioural changes and it reflects .Digital uptake has been one such phenomenon and although the richer or more affluent section of the people reaped the maximum dividends It has been a great leveller as even the lower middle stratum people, attuned somewhat of this ongoing process quickly adapted to this changing life style. Out of the devastation the civilisation brings in new dawn of opportunities. There have been many which FFIFS wants to dissect and understand how it has changed. With this end in view we start our 2022 journey with a renewed vigour and resolution that let us make 2022 a year of consolidation and a launch pad to recover lost grounds and rediscover the lost momentum and recoup the stalled onward march to inclusive growth agenda afresh and for all those to whom it matters the most.
