What is Microfinance?Microfinance is a type of financing used throughout the world which serves the millions of people. The concept of microfinance was introduced in 1976 by Nobel Prize recipient Muhammed Yunus. The theory behind microfinance is that some people are excluded from accessing capital, and by giving small loans to the them, they are able to receive a great benefit from small microloans. These loans have a profound affect on those excluded from the traditional sources of capital because it substantially increases their human equity and, according to the law of diminishing returns, their productivity increases exponentially. While microfinance has a strong foothold abroad, BMG focuses on giving microloans to small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Greater Boston area.”
