Microcredit and microfinance have changed the lives of people and revitalized communities in the world’s poorest and also the richest countries. We have seen the enormous power that access to even modest financial services can bring people. With access to a range of financial tools, families can invest according to their own priorities — IGAs, school fees, health care, business, nutrition or housing.
