What Is Microfinance?

Microfinance is a source of financial services for entrepreneurs and small businesses lacking access to banking and related services. 

The two main mechanisms for the delivery of financial services to such clients are: 

(1) relationship-based banking for individual entrepreneurs and small businesses; and (2) group-based models, where several entrepreneurs come together to apply for loans and other services as a group.

In some regions, for example Southern Africa, microfinance is used to describe the supply of financial services to low-income employees, which is closer to the retail finance model prevalent in mainstream banking.
