Abstract

This study intends to provide light on the favourable benefits of microfinance on a variety of social and economic outcomes, such as poverty reduction, job creation, economic independence for women, and long-term societal advancement. By enhancing the availability of financial and non-financial services to MSEs, we can increase their impact on the national economy. Microcredit programmes administered by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have effectively reduced poverty in developing nations by providing loans with low-interest rates and minimal requirements for collateral. This study’s methodology is based on a discussion and a review of prior research. However, the study’s primary finding demonstrates that microfinance is critically essential. However, it confronts other obstacles that could restrict its contribution to long-term growth and monetary inclusion.
