The percentage of people living below the poverty line is also much higher in the states of UP and BIHAR - 31% and 42% respectively as compared to 26% for India. Moreover within UP and BIHAR, the districts in Eastern UP and Western BIHAR are poorer and more backward that the rest of the State. The average per capita income in UP is half of that in India while its less than one third in the case of Bihar. CASHPOR was the first MFI to set up operations in the poverty stricken regions of eastern UP and Bihar CASHPOR has consciously chosen to work in a region that is not just poor as compared to the rest of the country, but poor when compared to even the rest of the state. 3
