Microfinance is a proven vehicle for building the productive capacity of the entrepreneurial poor and the self-reliance of communities. Nearly 1 billion people have limited access to financial services, leaving them vulnerable to family emergencies and natural or man-made disasters. Through access to savings, credit, insurance, and other financial services, microfinance can smooth household cash flows, improve livelihoods, and alleviate poverty. Building on their extensive experience, Banyan Global advises microfinance institutions (MFIs) on strategies to ensure their financial viability and scale up their services to reach a greater number of clients. They have built and supported MFIs in developing and transitional economies in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
