Micro Finance is about bringing financial service to poor people; people on low incomes and marginalised in their societies. Our experience is that poor people, who have to live with irregular and undependable income and who are more vulnerable to shocks and unexpected events, have less access to savings and credit, and have higher costs in accessing financial services.
Micro Finance is about developing responsible financial services at a low cost, and in forms that are relevant to people living in poverty, with the goal of promoting their inclusion in society.
