  • Suggested Notes:
    The poor are typically excluded by financial service providers:
    No collateral
    No credit history
    Illiteracy
    The poor need financial services, and already use them informally:
    Borrowing money from loan sharks with interest rates so high that it may be impossible to ever pay back
    Savings accounts kept in the home, vulnerable to theft
    Investing in livestock which is vulnerable to disease
    Microfinance works to provide the poor with these financial services, in a safe and controlled environment, through a microfinance institution
  • Suggested Notes:
    With Kiva, you can be micro-lender
    You can act as a banker and provide the funds to microfinance institutions that they then lend to entrepreneurs
  • Suggested Notes:
    There are thousands of microfinance institutions around the world, and they all vary a little depending on the region they are in and people they are targeting to help
    Some focus on women in places where women don’t have the same rights as men and so have no economic empowerment
    Some focus on the rural population in areas where people are isolated and cannot travel to cities to access services
    Some focus on a comprehensive program which includes business training with financial products
    What ties them all together, however, is a desire to help the poor by providing them with financial services
    The Good and the Bad of Microfinance: (Optional Notes)
    What are the good things about Microfinance?
    With a relatively small amount of money, poor people can start or improve their business
    Most formal lending institutions won’t lend to them. Why?
    Microfinance can help women and girls
    Microfinance works inside communities
    Microfinance is empowering
    Microfinance is person to person development
    What are the bad things about microfinance
    Takes a long time to get a loan
    Borrowers have to do a lot of things to get a loan
    So borrowers look for MFIs with the fewest requirements
    What does this mean?
    It costs a lot to give a loan, so interest rates are high
    How high? Not everyone wants a business, some wish they could be an employee

    4. 4. 4 The Traditional Microfinance Lending Process Microfinance Institutions Microfinance Institutions EntrepreneursEntrepreneurs Banks and NGOs Banks and NGOs • Microfinance institutions typically get the money that they lend, from banks or non-governmental organizations, or both • This can be expensive, as it is often borrowed with interest • There may also be difficult application procedures to access debt capital from non-governmental organizations • Some organizations can even find themselves shut out due to the region they operate in, particularly post-conflict regions • Restrictions that microfinance institutions face ultimately affect the entrepreneurs, who rely on microfinance institutions to serve them
