FAQs

What is Microfinance?
Microfinance is the provision of financial services—small loans, savings, insurance—and business training to very low-income individuals, particularly women, to help them start and grow income-generating businesses. It is an effective strategy in the fight against poverty and critical in providing economic opportunity to those in need. Unfortunately, banks view these entrepreneurs as too risky for investment. That’s where MicroDreams, and you, can help.
