Keywords:Microfinance, Institutionalized credit, Poverty alleviation, Developing country
The Indian economy is characterized by a slow rate of development, a large rural population, an over-reliance on agriculture, a high rate of unemployment and poverty, among other factors. Some recently developed solutions, including micro financing, are playing a crucial role in helping to solve these issues. Microfinance plays a crucial role in the lives of small business owners and residents of rural areas. Rural residents have very limited access to institutionalized credit, thus microfinance acts as a blessing for them by helping them to resolve their financial issues. In a developing nation like India, microfinance is viewed as an instrument for socioeconomic advancement. It is anticipated to have a big impact on development and reducing poverty. The importance of microfinance in India's economic development is highlighted in this study.
