Kerala State Financial Enterprises, popularly known as KSFE, is a miscellaneous non-banking financial company, exclusively owned by Govt of Kerala.
Chit business in Kerala was under private monopoly until 1969. Far too many frauds and deeds of financial mismanagement had occurred in this particular business segment. A number of people had lost their life-long savings, as one private chit fund after another had kept on collapsing. That was when the then Kerala government, under the visionary leadership of EMS Namboodirippad, intervened.
The government decided to float its own chitty company that would protect the interests of the subscribers and channelize the savings for productive purposes of the state. The new institution would have the government as the guarantor of people’s deposits. And it would offer all the benefits of a traditional chitty scheme.
It was the beginning of a remarkable success story. From its inception in 1969, KSFE has never reported loss even in a single financial year. Over the years, KSFE has left a trail of hundreds of thousands of satisfied subscribers and a number of instances of supporting the state treasury.
KSFE now is the only the trusted name in chit business. Spread throughout the state, it has over 565 branches spread and boasts of a turnover of INR 32,000 crores.
KSFE offers the whole spectrum of financial products now: loans like chitty loan, gold loan, personal loan, trade loan, overdraft facility, and housing loan and fixed deposits and savings deposits.
