Microfinance is the provision of financial services to those who need microcredits. It presents a series of exciting possibilities for extending markets, improving livelihoods and fostering social as well as economic empowerment. Today, the World Bank estimates that about 160 million people in developing countries are served by microfinance. Playing a major role in the development of nations across Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America, microfinance offers low-income individuals access to basic financial services such as loans, deposits, savings, payment services, money transfers and micro-insurance.

Demand for microfinance by non-bank financial institutions, credit unions and co-operative banks is rising steadily as they recognise the strategic value of extending their reach to new customers and as the industry yields both financial and social returns. Hence, innovation in microfinance continues to evolve to cover microcredits for agriculture, fisheries, small scale retailers, distributors, laborers, education and scholarships, construction and others.
