OVERVIEW

We need to differentiate between ‘microcredit’ (the provision of tiny loans) and ‘microfinance’ (the provision of tiny loans, savings facilities, insurance, and cash transfer, usually among business coaching and different non-financial services).
Sadly, the terms are typically used interchangeably, with some critics decrying the quality of microcredit whereas using the term microfinance. It is not clear, therefore, whether or not their criticism is restricted to microcredit or whether or not if truth were told they are conjointly casting doubt on the quality of savings, insurance and cash transfer.
Microfinance alone cannot solve all the problems of poverty:
Poverty is multidimensional and includes poor health, lack of education and skills, inadequate living conditions, and therefore the threat of violence, additionally as lack of financial gain and therefore the poor quality of labor. During this complicated atmosphere, whereas microfinance could facilitate, it is chimerical to expect one intervention by itself to deal with of these different problems and dramatically amendment poor people’s lives.
