MicroFinance

Financial Inclusion Without Barriers

In many parts of the world, government goals for financial inclusion and poverty reduction are driving an increase in microfinance.

In other parts of the world, organizations of all sizes are seeking to provide financial services to poor and low-income clients.

In addition to tailoring the services to meet client needs one of the biggest challenges is delivering the services where the customers are – in rural areas, often far from existing branch networks.

Reaching your Customers

While traditional channels such as branches and call centers have a role to play, they don't provide the access your customers need. The solution is to use technology that is already in place and/or more portable. Mobile phones, mobile internet, Point-of-sale devices and ATMs can be used in more remote locations to provide your customers with access to their financial information.

Delivering the Right Products

Microfinance is not simply about smaller loans, the structure of the loans can be very different. For example solidarity lending – where loans are made to groups rather than individuals are often used. Some MFIs use sophisticated policies to guide their business, including the policies around how long people need to be regular savers before they can take out loans.
