    Belstar was acquired by Hand in Hand group in September 2008 to provide scalable microfinance services to entrepreneurs nurtured by the Hand in Hand India (HIH) Self Help Group (SHG) program. It aims to provide financial assistance to more than 0.3 million borrowers within the next 5 years and intends to use its synergy with the activities of the Hand in Hand group to create 5 million jobs by end of 2020. BIFPL started its micro lending operations in a small way in one district in Tamil Nadu and two districts in Karnataka in April 2009.

BIFPL now follows both the SHG as well as the PRAGATI model of lending. Muthoot Finance Limited a listed company and the largest gold financing Company has made a strategic Equity Investment of Rs 40 Crore in the Company in the month of July 2016 and also acquired all the stake from the foreign Investors.
