Running against the current is in the DNA of Microfinance (MF): while commercial banks have fancy buildings, we only have a laptop and point-of-sale printer; in the finance industry, customers go to the Banks, at MF we go to our associate’s rural communities; commercial banks typically loan to men, while in MF 98% of our associates are women; commercial banks only loan to solvent people that can offer a guarantee, while at MF we loan to low-income individuals that typically don’t have any collateral to offer.
At MF we are different not only in the way we approach the problem of accessing financial resources; we are also different in the way approach ministry. We are honest and deeply interested in the holistic development of the people we serve, ie from a financial, physical and spiritual perspective.
In Romans 12:2, the Apostol Paul invites us to not “conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”.
In MF we are in the business of helping people to renew their minds. Would you join us to keep running against the current?
