Microfinance

Microfinance is a category of financial services targeting individuals and small businesses who lack access to conventional banking and related services.  Microfinance is defined as, financial services such as savings accounts, insurance funds and credit provided to poor and low income clients so as to help them increase their income, thereby improving their standard of living. Microcredit is the extension of small loans and other financial services (such as savings accounts) to the very poor. This allows them to pursue entrepreneurial projects that generate extra income, thus helping them to better provide for themselves and their families. Various types of institutions offer microfinance: credit unions, commercial banks, NGOs (Non-governmental Organizations), cooperatives, and sectors of government banks. The emergence of “for-profit” MFIs is growing. In India, these 'for-profit' MFIs are referred to as Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFC).
