2.3 Direct actions in communities

2.3.5 Micro finance

Recommendation1. Take into account substantial insights that can affect microfinance provision success:

  • Provision of a broad range of micro finance products including package with diversified interest rates and loan periods
  • Women’s specific finance needs and habits at different life cycle moments and in accordance with their physical mobility opportunities (some are able to be more mobile than others)
  • Identification of innovative ways of reaching borrowers, especially in remote, rural areas and/or where they have low educations levels.  E.g. example from Malawi where a biometric smart card is used that enables non-literate customers can open and manage a savings account using only their fingerprints for identification.
