What is Micro Finance?

Micro Finance is how credit, insurance, money transfers, and access to savings bank accounts are made available to small business owners and entrepreneurs in the underdeveloped part of the country. In India, it’s observed that the major recipients of microfinance are those who do not have access to traditional financial resources like a business loan. The interest rate on micro loans is higher than on traditional personal loans.

Types of Microfinance

The three main types of Micro finance is Micro Loans, Micro savings, and Micro insurance. Let’s understand them further-

  • Micro Loans - Micro Loans are of importance here. They are provided with no collateral mainly for people from rural areas who require small amounts 
  • Micro Savings - Micro savings allow small businessmen to operate their savings account with no minimum balance. The advantage is that it will create a habit among the users to save for the future along with bringing in some financial discipline.
  • Micro Insurance - Micro insurance is a type of coverage provided to small businesses that take a microloan. These insurance plans tend to have a lower premium than that of a traditional insurance policy.
  • Micro LAP - At Fullerton India, we also provide loans against property (LAP) to individuals as well as MSMEs at highly competitive rates. These loans are secured against property and have tenures ranging up to 15 years. Individuals can use these loans to finance large personal expenses. Small business owners who need a larger loan and a tenure longer than 5 years can avail this loan to meet their business needs. 

The importance of a Micro Loan can be understood as it provides individuals and small businesses an option for securing finance where traditional forms of finance aren’t available. This instills a sense of financial stability so that their aspiration of creation of assets and protection against risk is fulfilled.
