Q 1:- What are the institutional voids/deficiencies highlighted by the case?
The voids mentioned in the case which Hih was facing and which were hampering the implementation of the 5 programs and all the development services are:-
Poor infrastructure:- India’s poor infrastructure in rural areas and lack of integrated information systems to connect 12 districts was making it difficult to determine capital requirements or branch performance.

Requirement of collateral while filing the loan documents. All these problems were addressed with the coming of MFIs and hence it became an essential tool for providing capital access to the poor. The question whether this MFIs were feasible for HiH is a mind bender because it is the only program that would give funds to the organisation and make it sustainable or else HiH would be only considered as other NGO. The Micro finance is the only way that would empower the people providing the source of employment and ultimately eradicating poverty and child
