Microcredit Summit

Micro credit programmes offer small loans, and other financial services such as savings, to very poor people for self-employment projects that generate income, allowing them to care for themselves and their families. The Micro credit Summit Campaign brings together micro credit practitioners, advocates, educational institutions, donor agencies, international financial institutions, non-governmental organisations and others involved with micro credit to promote best practices in the field, to learn from each other, and to work towards reaching their goal.
