CARE conceived this project and established the SART team in Chennai to strengthen the microfinance institutions (MFIs) and microfinance (MF) programmes in Tsunami affected regions with the objective of providing improved and sustained access to financial services to the affected communities. SART‘s mandate was to accomplish the above objective in four and a half years resulting in restoration of livelihoods for the Tsunami affected people, by building local partnerships with NGOs and providing technical inputs and small grant support to them.
