Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability

Microfinance is a broad category of services, which includes microcredit. Microcredit is only about provision of credit services to poor clients. Critics often point to some of the ills of micro-credit that can create indebtedness. Due to diverse contexts in which microfinance operates, and the broad range of microfinance services, it is neither possible nor wise to have a generalized view of impacts Microfinance may create. Many studies have tried to assess its impacts.Proponents often claim that microfinance lifts people out of poverty, but the evidence is mixed. What it does do, however, is to enhance financial inclusion.
