SKS Microfinance, the country's largest and only listed microfinance company, said on Tuesday its board has approved raising up to 9 billion rupees ($202.7 million) through share sale to institutions.

The micro lender also said it had a net loss of 2.19 billion rupees in the June-quarter compared with net profit of 666.9 million a year ago.

Income from operations during the period nearly halved to 1.5 billion rupees, it said.
