Abstract : Microfinance is a provision of thrift credit and other financial services and provide products of very small amounts to the poor for enabling them to raise their income levels and improve their living standards. Women in rural areas are considered to be less empowered so empowering them is a key not only for the well-being of individuals, families and rural communities, but also for overall economic productivity.
