What are Micro Lending?

Micro lending represents a form of financing that offers small sums to self-employed entrepreneurs in small businesses or startups to help them efficiently manage their businesses. The borrower generally utilizes microloans if they do not have access to local financial institutions, have poor credit scores, or require a loan smaller than banks offer. Microfinance institutes (MFIs), banks, and non-banking financial institutions (NBFCs) are some common providers of microloans. An interest rate or finance fee is charged for the sanction of credit or the extension of existing credit. Micro lending aids the economic growth of individuals, promotes financial liberation, and supports entrepreneurs.
