Microfinance is the process of granting small loans to poor people, primarily women, who have no collateral and lacking access to banking and related services, for setting up microenterprises.
The areas covered under this scheme are for starting small grocery, buying domestic animals, manufacturing sweets, selling soft drinks, grinding spices, sewing, candle making, making wigs and extensions, repairing watches, tea or petty shops, vegetable stands, bicycle repair, carpentry and welding shop, etc.
The method of repayment of loans leaving small savings with them, generates funds that can be reinvested.
