By providing small loans, from as little as $100, they help women in proverty to start a business, earn an income and provide for their family.
It’s been an incredibly successful model: so far they’ve been able to help more than 2 million clients and 97% of the loans have been repaid in full.
Here Kristina Keneally talks about how microfinance is transforming lives in India and how a small loan can make all the difference to the world’s poorest women.
